Wondering why you map NCN route 6 away from the River Leen in Nottingham, between Old Basford and Bulwell? I'm guessing it's to avoid the bridge with steps near Bulwell, but it means that a nice stretch of river is replaced by dull roads. There's other ways of avoiding the bridge.

Converting an NCN route from the raw OpenStreetMap data into an editable cycle.travel route isn’t a 100% foolproof process – it occasionally makes little slip-ups like that when there are two parallel routes with a very similar “score”. I’ll look at fixing this one – thanks for spotting.
