For anyone interested, our local Cycling + OSM community is currently
working on an OSM Bike Ottawa Tagging Guide.


It mentions features like sharrows & bicycle shared lanes with in-depth
photos using Mapillary.

For any avid OSM cyclist, we would definitely welcome some feedback using
the GitHub issues.

Happy cycling!
