> I think many mappers are very happy with these country specific access
rules. This will prevent an overload of tags on roads. There is only one
router I know personnaly and that is the creator of the Openfietsmap
<http://www.openfietsmap.nl/home>Garmin map. His map (lite version) is
also worldwide
He uses this country specific scheme.

Part of his script is here. I think it makes clear that trunk roads are not
accessabel for bicycles in some countries regardless of any "bicycle=no"

highway=trunk & mkgmap:country ~
DNK|HUN|ROU)' { set highway=motorway }
highway=trunk & bicycle=no { set highway=motorway }
highway=trunk { set highway=primary }
