cycle.travel doesnt allow long stretches of footpath to be used in a route, presumably because its forbidden.
However some of the footpaths are actually large paved or gravel tracks traverse-able by car. They appear correct in OS and Openstreetmap but not on the cycle.travel map. This means I cant create a cross-country route that is in reality perfectly fine for bikes.
If the map cant be changed, is there any way of overriding the footpath routing prevention?
just thinking that a useful feature when plotting a route between 2 points would be to chose a flatter profile with fewer climbs, but might be a longer distance. Is this possible?
Ive only just started using cycle.travel and think its a great resource.
However I had some confusion over the definition of roundabout exit numbers when out on a ride yesterday. At 2 roundabouts, the route wanted me to go straight over, which to me would be the second exit on a standard 4 exit roundabout. However it referred to both of them as exit 3 (which to me would be going right rather than straight).
Is this deliberate and some alternative definition? Can it be corrected?
