It makes a real difference if you have a cycletrack along side a primary
route or a cycleway through the fields. In a city you often prefer calm
residential roads over cycleways along side major roads. In this way the
routing does not find many smarter, saver and shorter + faster routes.

Well, how about crossing=* ? In my region there are no traffic_signals
map on cycleways but crossing=traffic_signal together with
highway=traffic_signal or highway=crossing on the common node of
cycleway and road.

Sorry, was a typo. I meant sharp turns. I found a route where in favour
of the cycleway the route leads down a ramp, makes a u-turn (radius <
2.5m otherwise you fall into the river) and on the next bridge the same,
first 180° turn than uphill a ramp and two more turns.

Please, have an option to share the route without logging in.

Thanks colliar
