BaltiCCycle.eu Routes

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Collection of international, national, regional and local bicycle routes in Baltic States Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and their neighborhood (Poland, Russia, Finland). The www.BaltiCCycle.eu routes are orientated to "cycleability now": They avoid most crowded roads as well as bad quality surface roads. Thus both - gravel roads and small parts of cycling along heavy traffic routes - stay inevitable and just can be minimalised. Opposite to the National routes the long-distance BaltiCCycle.eu routes connect main points of interest and do not stop at the national border. The routes are a temporary network until the national and international signing of all routes will be implemented (at the moment only Lithuanian coast and Estonia).

Tagging

a) long-distance www.BaltiCCycle.eu routes are build by relations. There are cross-country or international.
