First post, trying to get more into the machinery behind this amazing mapping tool.
I’m attempting to plan a route going along a section of national cycle route 21 (southern England) but it isn’t working, even when I try to manually waypoint all the way along. The site I’m routing on is ‘openrouteservice.org’. Anyway, I figure it could be that the path hasn’t been set up as being navigable by bike so I take a look on the OSM site but not really sure what I’m looking for - the pieces of path I click on seem to have the correct assertions and tags unless i’m missing something.
Here’s an example of what I mean:
Can anyone with a spare moment take a look and let me know what’s going on??
The paths openrouteservice avoids are tagged as bridleway with bicycles allowed. It could be that opernrouteservice favors a proper highway over a bridleway or ignores the bicycle allowed tag completely on bridleways which in some countries are open to horse riding only.
Ah, I see. My main aim with this topic was to make sure the OSM data was correct and, if it wasn’t, help to amend it. If it is certainly a problem on openrouteservice’s part then I am satisfied. I have already messaged the developer (but have yet to receive a reply). By the way, I cycled this route yesterday and the path is lovely and very suitable for cycling if anyone is near the Worth Way. Thanks again for the help!
