Fully agree. Go for it.

OSM is for verifiable, signposted cycle routes and verifiable, real cycling
infrastructure. If a route is on the way to being signposted then it can be
mapped with state=proposed.

There are literally millions of personal favourite rides in guidebooks and
on third-party websites but with no supporting evidence on the ground. There
is no place for these in OSM.

(I have a fair few lines of code in cycle.travel's rendering and routing
codes to blacklist certain routes in OSM which are made up or otherwise
