cycle.travel runs on OSM data, but it's augmented with supplementary 
data from Ordnance Survey and other sources. I use a little homegrown 
tool to add extra tags to the ways in the OSM .pbf:

Romain - I'd suggest you start by creating a small .osm file with an 
extract of your converted data (say, a town or county) and running OSRM 
over that. As Patrick says, there are a few gotchas with connectivity 
and tags. Once you're happy with that, you can rewrite your tool to 
create a .pbf.
