I want to add to our towns bike path. The map shows 2 separate paths however there is a street which would link the 2 sections. How do I add the street portion to the other sections?
I haven’t done any bicycle mapping so this is speculation on my part, but. . .
The street between the two sections probably has a bicycle lane on it and if so that should be tagged. If there is no bicycle lanes but it is officially a bicycle route then the bicycle=designated tag can be used. See: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bicycle
And then the three parts can be put into a route relation to show they are all part of the same official bicycle path. See: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Cycle_routes
