Looking closer at planning my LEJoG (turned from a 'gentle LEJoG' into a 'Pressured PandemicPedal' owing to the May Govt timelines.....need to get more into the detail!

I came across this section:

I know the area a little, & wonder why the default choice doesn't hop left across the river in Dent to then follow cycle path 68.
  
I know it isn't exactly a busy city (!), but I would expect more vans/campers/caravans (traffic in general!) on the road north of the river. 

Any thoughts on the hidden logic?

It’s an incredibly finely balanced choice between the two! cycle.travel rates them very similarly – the northern route scores only 3% better.

Unfortunately publicly available traffic data doesn’t cover small roads like that. I think the southern route is suffering because of the cobblestones in Dent… I should probably make the cobbled weighting a little more nuanced.
