I know that sign :-)
Have to admit, I've lost track of where the 76 route goes after the  
Forth Bridge. There seems to be a new housing development in  
Dunfermline which means that the national route 1 suddenly loses its  
directions. The maps that sestrans provide on their site are pretty  
useless as they don't give the route number and they are a pain to  
navigate. Probably the best map I've seen yet for any part of the  
National Cycle Network is by North Lanarkshire council at: <http:// 
docres_national+cycle+route+75_national+cycle+route+75.html>. It's  
just a pity that they don't spend half as much time cleaning the  
masses of glass from the cycle path through their council area.

Gregory was mentioning that a letter is used to determine if it is a  
national or regional route. Therefore it would become N1;N76. The  
only regional network in the Edinburgh area that I know if is number  
43, which is the Union canal and Forth and Clyde canal connecting  
Edinburgh and Glasgow. Other areas of the country seem to make far  
more use of the regional route numbers.

It has already been started and is available at <http:// 
www.informationfreeway.org/> however only a few tiles have been  
rendered so far.
