[Tagging] routes with double use hiking and bicycle

My reaction was to how I read your message, it seemed like you would create
2 route_master relations and use those as members in a route relation.

For foot and bicycle relations it is possible to use sub relations for
parts in common between multiple routes, or if one route is designated
separately but is part of a 'superroute', but if I understood correctly for
that case both would be route relations.

That's not what this case is about is about though.

If the renderers and routers can cope with it, simply use a semicolon
between the tags, in case the members are exactly the same. If not, ask
them to update their software logic. In that case one route relation for
multiple 'modes of transport' suffices and we can keep things simple.
