It's a start, anyway. The real weakness of sites like bikely is they
never (afaik) display multiple routes at once. You can use OSM to see
how different routes intersect each other, and plan a route that uses
bits of different ones. But GPSies, Bikely etc have never had this
capability - different routes are just shown as dots until you
actually select one for more detail.
