Two routes, currently mapped together in one relation, but also containing subrelations, and not in the right order, and the total of that is part of a higher relation which also has variants. You can’t blame the route designers, you simply have to accommodate the real life variations. For rendering, it’s ok like it is. For routing, not at all. Cycling planners are slightly better than hiking planners, but I would like to see one make a plausible navigation route out of the E2 Yorkshire relation as it is now.
And yes, that’s a challenge.

Feed that to a navigation device and it will have you start in Muston, take you around and across the entire region multiple times, and end up near Barnetby Ie Wold. You wil actually have followed the E2 as well, I'll give you that!
> "Following in the E2 in Yorkshire" would be an odd thing to do as there are two parallel legs of it (see https://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#?map=8!54.1195!-1.3988 ). From the Humber bridge one side follows the Wolds Way / Cleveland Way etc. to just west of Darlington, and on the other side of the county it runs from the Tan Hill Inn down the Pennine Way. The problem here isn't the mapping in OSM, but the decision by whoever created the route to have two parallel routes called the same thing.
