I tried using your cycle map; unfortunately, it directed me through three industrial estates that are closed to the public!

The route: http://cycle.travel/map/journey/9378 (from 'Woodchurch Lane, Rossmore Estate, Ellesmere Port, Rivacre Village, Cheshire West and Chester' to 'Wood Street, Lower Bebington, Wirral District')

It goes through Vauxhall Motors (http://goo.gl/maps/AtfRz), Port of Manchester (http://goo.gl/maps/oWbtw), and Unilever (http://goo.gl/maps/WcR8L); all with warning signs or barriers.

These should be corrected on http://openstreetmap.org/ if you can - usually by either adding gates or by selecting roads and setting their access properties to private or destination, depending on the restrictions.

Oh and I forgot to add: then cycle.travel should pick up the changes the next time the maps are reloaded.
