An OSM project to map the UK's National Cycle Network (NCN). Co-ordinated by Sustrans, the NCN links most parts of the UK with special traffic-free routes and quiet country lanes. It has its own numbering system, roughly analogous to the road network. Though the network is mapped on Sustrans' own site, this is derived from Ordnance Survey mapping. By using OSM to create our own "creative, productive, or unexpected" maps, we can promote use of this wonderful resource.
|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:
|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.|
- National Routes
- Regional Routes
- Local Routes (in particular London)
- Northern Ireland
- National Byway
See Cycle routes for information on tagging NCN routes.
There are many mileposts around the network, which can be tagged and are rendered on the cycle map. They come in one of four different types. Sustrans have provided a full list of mileposts and artwork and would like help in mapping them to their correct locations.
|ncn_milepost=dudgeon||Dudgeon type milepost|
|ncn_milepost=mccoll||McColl type milepost|
|ncn_milepost=mills||Mills type milepost|
|ncn_milepost=rowe||Rowe type milepost|
