I'll do that as soon as there's data to be rendered, just let me know
when and what tags, and I'll choose the shade of brown!

As for tagging, I'm not sure. I've got a similar problem with the
Wandle Trail*, which is a green-signed leisure route, different from
the national and london cycle networks and I think done by the local
http://flickr.com/photos/purplespace/44422410/ - ignore the blue
London cycle network number. So the state of play is:

ncn - Sustrans National Cycle network (in red)
rcn - Sustrans Regional Cycle network (in blue)
lcn - local cycle networks (inc. London cycle network) - also in blue

but we need to mark up this National Byway, and any other organised
cycle networks or routes there are that don't fit into the three tags
already that I don't yet know about! acn for Arbitrary Cycle Network?


* Actually, I gave up worrying about that one, since the Wandle Trail
overlaps with a London Cycle network route which in turn forms part of
one of Sustrans' NCN routes so it's not that important!
