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 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.
