Hi all,

An important part of the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route now requires 
cyclists to get a permit:

How should this be tagged?

It's not quite 'bicycle=permissive' - that's generally used to imply 
that bikes are allowed in by goodwill of the landowner but don't have to 
book, whereas in this case a permit has to be expressly applied for.

Some possibilities:

	reservation:bicycle=required
	bicycle=permit
	bicycle=license
	   [little used, but see 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:access%3Dlicense]

(Incidentally, =license should of course be =licence, because the lingua 
franca of OSM is British English. ;) )

cheers
Richard
