Please stop doing that.  While the cycle network is not fully mapped in 
the area, impeding it's progress by reverting routes that are local only 
because there is an immediately adjacent cycleway or bicycle boulevard 
under Oregon law ORS 814.420 is not helpful or necessary.  As the Data 
Working Group pointed out, it's also extremely poor form to revert work 
done by people who actually know the area, especially when the person 
doing the reverting has never even set foot in said area (as evidenced by 
your lack of GPX tracks).

Feel free to hire a lawyer who has passed the Oregon bar if you want to 
try to continue down this path; otherwise you're simply vandalizing the 
map and discouraging anyone local from editing.  Stick to what you 
actually know.
