I don't understand what point you're trying to make.  Or how those
sentences contradict the idea of using a route
master to cope with the variations of walking and cycling.  Unconventional,
yes, but you're the person who invented
the reverse role for routes, so you don't let conventions bind you.  If the
walking and cycling route weren't exactly
identical (as is often the case) but largely corresponded, would a route
master be appropriate then?  If not, why
not?  It's a route from A to B with variants.

It was just a thought, anyway.  As I said, I didn't think through all the
ramifications.  But nothing you've said so far
convinces me the idea is wrong.
