There is a way to avoid tagging the way with the route tag:


See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Whitewater_sports#Grades

I consent your canoe practice on a lake is perhaps far from 'whitewater' practice, but grade 0 describes a lake perfectly. And if the route follows a river with grade 1, then map it as such.
