overriding footpaths

Hi,

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?

thanks

flatten

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?

roundabout exit count

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?
