I'm in favor of being flexible for cycling routes. A good example is
the great divide mtb route in Canada & US. It is probably not signed
very well, if at all. It was created by a non-profit & I don't think
it is an official government route. It is used by quite a few people,
both on bikes and motorbikes. It is in OSM and should remain so.
