After some more though, there is a 'solution' for this. I'm not sure it
will produce the best results in every case, but it's worth a try.
House -> cycleways -> cycle routes -> cycleways -> Work
The cycleroute instance of Gosmore given the House and Work coordinates
will produce a route using cycle routes from coordinates nearest to the
House and Work coordinates. We'll name these to and from coordinates
House_cn and Work_cn hereafter.
Then the route is calculated from House to House_cn and Work_cn to Work
using the normal Gosmore instance. These three routes combined will give
you a route from House to Work using cycleroutes as much and fast
(closest) to your House and Work as possible. The only adjustment to
Gosmore would be to persuade it to find the nearest way from a given
coordinate even for large distances instead of the few dozen meters it
Would this suit your expectations?
