Ohio/Route relations/Bicycle routes

Jump to navigation Jump to search
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


CyclOSM A free cycle-oriented map with more features than OpenCycleMap. See its wiki page CyclOSM.
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.

U.S. Bicycle Routes

Mark all member relations as network=ncn + cycle_network=US:US + ref=number + only if actually proposed, state=proposed. Please keep this list synchronized with WikiProject U.S. Bicycle Route System.

USBR Number Relation Status and notes
21 relation 8096914

Identified in ODOT's Access Ohio 2040 transportation plan as the highest priority USBR. The draft route map indicates that the route will largely follow the relation Ohio to Erie Trail, superseding State Bike Route 1. As that is an existing statewide route, already correctly entered into OSM as an rcn route, we wait on further efforts here until ODOT moves closer to motion on a state USBR 21 project before we might either tag the state route with ncn=proposed, include Ohio rcn=1 into an ncn ref=21 relation, or create an altogether new ncn ref=21 relation (different than rcn=1). However, as the segments between Mount Vernon and the intersection of Licking County's Foundation Road and Clover Valley Road (including the "Centerburg-Rich Hill Spur") are not shared with any other state or national bicycle route, these are seeded as a proposed USBR 21 in Ohio.

25 relation 3087492 ODOT's Access Ohio 2040 transportation plan targets designation of USBR 25 after USBR 21. The draft route map indicates that the route will follow the relation Ohio to Erie Trail from Cincinnati to Xenia,[1] the relation Creekside Trail to Dayton, the relation Great Miami River Recreation Trail and relation Canal Run to the outskirts of Piqua,[2][3][4] roads from there to Lima, the Ottawa River Bikeway (Rotary Riverwalk) in Lima,[5] and roads from there on north.[6][7][8][9][10][11] USBR 25 is currently mapped according to this proposal from Cincinnati to Xenia. However, ODOT's TIMS portal shows USBR 25 following the Mill Creek Greenway from Cincinnati to Fairfield[12] and the GMRRT from Fairfield to Dayton. As other potential USBR 25 in Ohio route segments are currently entered into OSM as actual statewide (rcn) routes, it is best to leave these as they are until ODOT moves closer to declaration that USBR 25 is becoming closer to AASHTO approval and therefore is a "real" statewide project. However, the latest (March, 2018) news from ACA is that USBR 25 in Ohio is very much a route in development at ODOT and that it is likely to be on the Spring, 2018 AASHTO ballot, with approval likely in April, 2018. Therefore, ncn=proposed is being added to selected portions of the route (Cincinnati to Xenia) as ODOT identifies it on its web site.
In the future, this route's elements might seed a yet-to-be-created super-relation for segments of Underground Railroad Bicycle Route. (But not yet; UGRR could likely be ridden and entered from a GPX track of a Contributor, for example, but per OSM's ODbL these data cannot be copied from ACA's maps).
30 No relation yet ODOT's Access Ohio 2040 transportation plan targets designation of USBR 30 after USBR 25. The draft route map calls for USBR 30 to follow the nascent North Coast Inland Trail.
30A No relation yet Not mapped yet. Proposed as part of ODOT's Access Ohio 2040 transportation plan. Stalled here (as a "red proposed route") until this gets further momentum from ODOT. (Too vague as a draft route to be considered a serious proposed route).
40 No relation yet ODOT's Access Ohio 2040 transportation plan proposes a route for USBR 40 that follows the Great Ohio Lake-to-River Greenway in eastern Ohio but otherwise follows State Bike Route K, which has not been mapped. Hence, this is stalled here (as a "red proposed route") until this gets further momentum from ODOT or there is a published Route K map available (in which case K should be entered into OSM as an rcn).
40A No relation yet Not mapped yet. As part of ODOT's Access Ohio 2040 transportation plan, the proposed route would largely follow the relation Wabash Cannonball Trail and North Coast Inland Trail.
50 relation 2532494 An AASHTO-approved route that is completely entered into OSM.
50A relation 2532436 OH:FRA, OH:DEL, OH:LIC segment Northeast of Columbus area. An AASHTO-approved route that is completely entered into OSM.

State bike routes

Mark all member relations as network=rcn + cycle_network=US:OH + ref=number. The lettered routes below are designated by ODOT; tag them as operator=Ohio Department of Transportation. (Most other routes are maintained by county park districts. For such routes that cross county lines, place the operator=* tag on the individual ways, not the relation.)

County bike routes

In counties that maintain a distinct county route system, mark relations as network=lcn + cycle_network=US:OH:XYZ + ref=number (optional), where XYZ is the three-letter county code found at Ohio#County abbreviations. Here are some known county bicycle route networks:
