CycleLayer2.png
An international cycling map created from OSM data is available, provided by Andy Allan. The map rendering is still being improved, the data are updated every few days. It shows National Cycle Network cycle routes, other regional and local routes, and other cycling-specific features, such as:
  • dedicated cycle tracks and lanes
  • contours and hill colouring
  • bicycle parking
  • bike shops, toilets, drinking fountains, even pubs!
  • proposed bike routes (or numbering protocols), contrasted with the Lonvia map, below, which does not show proposed routes, but actual routes only

http://www.opencyclemap.org/

Waymarked Trails: Cycling by Sarah Hoffman is a layer superimposed over mapnik (Standard Map Layer) which shows marked cycle routes around the world. Updated minutely, it renders actual routes without the state=proposed tag. Therefore no proposed routes (or proposed numbering protocols) are displayed.

I obtained tracks for the Ashford to Tenderden section in the summer, so the only section without tracks is from Tenderden to Royal Tunbridge Wells. I plan to cycle the route in the next few months to get the tracks. --Gregoryw 12:16, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

NR183 Faversham - Canterbury (via Church Wood) 100% Proposed: Relation 2596739 (XML, Potlatch2, iD, JOSM, history, analyze, manage, gpx) Proposed route on existing highways mapped. --Gregoryw 17:20, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Cycled Middlesborough to Thirsk(branches off to Thirsk?). There are some parts I couldn't say if I was still on NCN65 or not, and some questionable signs that perhaps led me astray.

Added the missing section between Skelton to Alne, but that area is badly mapped so needs revisiting anyway. We're close to completing this route now. --Kaerast 10:54, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Filled in the gap near Osmotherley, which I cycled on my Three Corners trip last summer. --Gregoryw 21:43, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Assuming it finishes at the same place as the Trans Pennine Trail, then I have been able to map it in where it ends on Hornsea sea-front at a funky artwork pole at the end of Sands Lane and where it enters Sands Lane from the route of the old Hull & Hornsea railway line. I was able to trace it back using Bing imagery, (i.e. *not* ground-truthed), to the Rolston Road B1241 roundabout. However, that overlaps slightly with existing mapping along Trinity Road ... needs checking which is right. MikeCollinson 17:02, 19 September 2011 (BST)

Followed signposting all the way which is complete from Bowness to Tynemouth, with only two or three ambiguous markings. The Carlisle passage is complete. Note that the trail is slightly different from the Bikely track that seems to be the one referenced most at the moment.
