Ohio/Route relations/Bicycle routes

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
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 United States Bicycle Route System.

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:
