Numbering in the UK reflects the "importance" of a route:
National routes carry two-digit numbers
Regional routes carry three-digit numbers
Local cycle routes are less consistently labelled.
OSM, born in the UK has inherited this approach
The UK national bicycle network is managed by Sustrans - see
Similarly tiered systems exist in the Netherlands and Germany.
In Italy there is a similar approach, that mirrors the administrative
organisation of the country: National routes connect several regions.
Regional routes connect severela provinces and local routes are typically
within a single province.
