I'm Richard Fairhurst - cartographer, developer, journalist, bike advocate and canal person. I've been involved in OpenStreetMap since November 2004.

I'm building, perhaps the most advanced bike routing engine in the world with OSM-powered maps and journey-planning.

I've written OSM stuff including Tilemaker and Potlatch 3 (...and 1 and 2). I map in the Cotswolds where I live; elsewhere where I visit; and am regrettably involved in the Sisyphean task of TIGER fixup, particularly identifying rural paved roads.

Useful cycleway tagging

As an aide-memoire:

Public domain
All my contributions to OpenStreetMap are released into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In case this is not legally possible, I grant anyone the right to use my contributions for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.
I don't give a flying monkey's for tag voting, automatic changebots, endless discussions, categories, or any of that crap, but prefer to get on and actually do stuff.
