Values for this key often parallel network=* values. Cycle routes already use network=* to indicate a route's relative level in a hierarchy of cycleway networks: network=icn = international, network=ncn = national, network=rcn = regional/state/provincial, network=lcn = local. So, cycle_network=* is used to help more precisely identify the entity or organization (often government, often hierarchical) responsible for assignment of route numbers (or names) and administration of the route numbering protocol of routes in that cycleway network. Ideally, all route relations in a single cycleway network should be tagged with the same cycle_network=* value.

While syntax for values of this tag (colon-separated hierarchical elements, often two- or three-letter acronyms or abbreviations...) is used in other key-value tags, each nation/region of the world creates slightly different values as this key is more widely adopted. (Some values are in a semicolon-separated list and should be parsed as such). This wiki documents current tagging strategies for cycle_network=* starting with Canada and USA. Please document here other countries (and improve existing ones) as more cycle_network=* tagging conventions emerge around the world.

While public (often government-published) bicycle routes are generally compatible with OSM's ODbL, use good judgement entering into OSM quasi-private (neither government-sanctioned nor approved, but public, for example, when signed) route data; only enter route data compatible with OSM's license and/or with explicit permission. Public route data can always be entered into OSM, quasi-private route data can usually be entered, but private route data should not be entered. If they are "personally sourced," for example, if you ride a route published under copyright while your GPS captures a GPX file, those GPX data belong to you and as an OSM Contributor you may say you have legal nexus to contribute them. However, you may or may not have a legal right to put a particular route name=* on those data. Be cautious, especially with copyrighted data and names.

Austria

Belgium

Cycle networks appear to exist, cycle_network=* tagging is not prevalent.

Canada

  • cycle_network=CA:CATrans Canada Trail, Canada's premier national bicycle route.
  • cycle_network=CA — A Canadian quasi-national bicycle route, not a member of any particular national cycle network. Currently, a single route gets a flavor of this tag: cycle_network=US;CA, on International Selkirk Loop to denote it is partly in Canada. Note that international network=icn routes do not render in OpenCycleMap, but do in WaymarkedTrails' Bike renderer.
  • cycle_network=CA:XY:ZProvincial bicycle routes, where XY is the two-letter provincial postal abbreviation and Z is the name or abbreviation of the network. For example, in FR:Route verte (Québec's "Green Way" bicycle network), each of seven routes is tagged cycle_network=CA:QC:RV. If a province only numbers routes with a ref=* value, not naming its regional cycleway network (network=rcn), simply leave Z empty.
  • cycle_network=CA:XY:LocalityLocal bicycle routes, where XY is the two-letter provincial postal abbreviation and Locality is the name of the local jurisdiction. Part of a local cycleway network (network=lcn).

France

Germany

Many existing values can become the same values preceded with DE: or other similar harmonizations. For example, radrevier.ruhr. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass turbo link to display the subsets.

Hungary

Many existing values can become the same values preceded with HU: or other similar harmonizations. For example, Pilisbike. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass turbo link to display the subsets.

Iceland

Italy

Many existing values can become the same values preceded with IT: or other similar harmonizations. For example, Bicitalia and Biciplan - Comune di Cremona. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass turbo link to display the subsets.

Japan

New Zealand

Existing values can become the same values preceded with NZ: or other similar harmonizations. For example, Nga_Haerenga_The_New_Zealand_Cycling_Trail. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass turbo link to display the subsets.

Phillipines

Existing values can become the same values preceded with PH: or other similar harmonizations. For example, Washington_Place_Homeowners'_Association. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass turbo link to display the subsets.

Portugal

Existing values can become the same values preceded with PT: or other similar harmonizations. For example, Pista_Internacional_de_XCO_do_Jamor. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass turbo link to display the subsets.

South Africa

Many existing values can become the same values preceded with ZA: or other similar harmonizations. For example, Bottelary MTB. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass Turbo link to display the subsets.

Spain

Existing values can become the same values preceded with ES: or other similar harmonizations. For example, Zona Zero. Try clicking the taginfo link, then values in the leftmost column and finally the Overpass turbo link to display the subsets.

United Kingdom

The seven routes with value Liverpool might become UK:Liverpool, or those tagged with value Warrington might become UK:Warrington. There may be additional similar harmonizations possible in the UK.

United States

  • cycle_network=US:US – Explicitly-numbered (in key ref=*) national cycleway network routes in the United States Bicycle Route System (network=ncn), approved by AASHTO. USBRs are sometimes signed; improved signage is ongoing.
  • cycle_network=US – The USA's four quasi-national (and quasi-private) bicycle routes: East Coast Greenway (ECG), Mississippi River Trail (MRT), Western New England Greenway (WNEG) and International Selkirk Loop (ISL). While each are independent routes "national in scope" in the United States, neither ECG, MRT, WNEG, nor ISL are members of any particular well-established national cycle network (network=ncn), as there is only one, the USBRS, and these are not member routes. Currently, ISL is tagged network=icn and cycle_network=US;CA.
  • cycle_network=US:ZPublic (government-published/sanctioned) or quasi-private (neither government-sanctioned nor approved by AASHTO, but public data) wide-area regional cycleway network (network=rcn) routes, where Z is a brief name, standardized acronym or abbreviation of the regional network. For example, US Government's Department of the Interior, National Park Service's routes are in a network tagged cycle_network=US:NPS. There are also private routes characterized as wide-area regional cycleway networks which should not be in OSM as this violates our ODbL, but in some limited cases, are. For example, <3 routes in Adventure Cycling Association's private (commercial, proprietary, copyrighted) network are tagged cycle_network=US:ACA. (Over time, these tend to be replaced by USBRs).
  • cycle_network=US:XY:ZState bicycle routes, where XY is the two-letter state postal abbreviation and Z is the name of the network (if there is a name, otherwise Z is empty). For example, in the state of Georgia's regional cycleway network (network=rcn), each route is tagged cycle_network=US:GA and key ref=* with the value of its state-issued route number.
  • cycle_network=US:XY:LocalityLocal bicycle routes where XY is the two-letter state postal abbreviation and Locality is the name of the local jurisdiction (county/city/town/local routes). Part of a local cycleway network (network=lcn).
