I'm not so sure that you can always piggyback cycle routes on top of  
existing 'highway' ways anyhow - I've encountered NCN routes and  
signposted walking routes that follow a residential street for some  
its length and then turn off down a side alley. This makes me think  
that ultimately the most appropriate solution might be to define a  
new way for each designated route, sharing the same segments as the  
underlying roads - or at least it would be if our editors were better  
at representing / editing overlapping ways...
