How to map?

Riding routes are mapped in relations relation of type type=route.
The following characteristics should be included:

Junction network

A junction network consists of numbered junctions of which the numbers are signposted on the routes in between. For more explanation about this method of mapping, see Cycle_routes#Tagging_Cycle_Route_Networks.

The junction number is tagged using the tag rhn_ref=* and network:type=node_network on a node node. This junction is mapped at the actual intersection where the routes meet, not on a signpost next to the road.

The routes in between the junctions are mapped as relations relation of type type=route. All ways in the route are added to the relation, preferably from the lower to the higher junction number. The following tags could be included:

All junctions and route relations in a network can be added to a network relation. This is a relation relation of type type=network.
