I think it'd help if we can show them the way. OSM doesn't show water flow
in canals (I've tried!) and the lock gate(s) icon needs fixing - to a <
going against the flow. I think much of the data on their map is already on
OSM - needs checking though. I also note they don't offer a cycle map -
which we'll obviously show. Stick with that - we'll get the cycling
fraternity pressing for them to use OSM !
