[talk-au] network and route tags

I was looking at Opencyclemap rather than mapnik, but the data has
updated now and the mtb trails look different to the cycle paths so
it's all good for me I think.

Now I'm trying to work out how to include a section of a way in a

ie I have a route (The Mawson trail) that passes along a section of a
fire road, but it doesn't pass along the full length of the fire road.
How do a I select only a section of the fire road (not the full length
of it) so I can make the relationship to the route?

Sorry for the scope creep of my original post.

Updates on opencyclemap have been vastly improved I've noticed. In line
with the normal map updates more or less*

Ok I've changed route=mtb to mtb=yes for the trail itself. That fixes

issue I had with the route side of this so that's great.

Using this approach an mtb trail (singletrack) looks the same as a

path (paved commuter path). Is this correct?

Looks the same in what? Mapnik? I'm not sure - mapnik may treat

"highway=path; bicycle=yes" as equivalent to "highway=cycleway".

They'll probably look different in opencyclemap, if and when that ever

gets updated again.
