Proposed features/bicycle sports
|Status:||Draft (under way)|
|Definition:||Types of cycle sports as sport=* and as refinement for sport=cycling.|
Cycle sport is competitive physical activity using bicycles. This proposal introduces the key cycling=* which complements sport=cycling. The proposed values are track_cycling, mtb, pump_track, cycle_speedway, cyclo-cross. It also adds the values cycle_polo and cycle_ball to sport=* and new keys cycle_polo:type=*, bmx:type=*.
The following cycle sports have been omitted:
- Motor-paced_racing/ Keirin - type of track cycling, describing all types of track cycling is currently not in scope of the proposal.
As with sport=* in general, add to following tags to other features. Such features usually are leisure=stadium, leisure=track, leisure=pitch, club=sport, leisure=sports_centre and the proposed building=sports_hall.
|Tag||Type of sport||Picture|
|Track cycling. A racing sport usually held on specially built banked tracks or velodromes.|
||Mountain_biking. Further refinement by mtb:type=* (Proposed_features/mtb:type): crosscountry, allmountain, freeride, downhill, northshore, slopestyle, dirtjump, trial. Use route=mtb for routes.|
|Pump Track. A circuit of banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by riders "pumping" - creating momentum via up and down body moments. Can be ridden with mountain or bmx bikes.|
|Cycle speedway. Bicycle racing on short oval dirt tracks, usually outdoors, occasionally indoors, typically 70–90 metres long.|
|Cyclo-cross. Bicycle racing consisting of many laps of a short (2.5–3.5 km or 1.5–2 mile) course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstruction and remount.|
|Cycle polo. Similar to traditional polo, except that bicycles are used instead of horses. Three variants are existing: Traditional on grass, Hardcourt Bike Polo and a variant played indoors in sport halls similar to cycle ball.|
|sport=cycle_ball||Cycle Ball. Similar to association football played on bicycles.|
| sport=bmx (already established)
|BMX. Performed on BMX bikes, either in competitive BMX racing or freestyle BMX.|
