My impression is that the point of having different levels of cycle routes
(local, regional, national) is to avoid problems with names conflicting.
That would suggest that Adam's interpretation is the way to go -- after all,
there's not too much risk that two different cycle routes within the same
metro area will have the same designation, right?
