OSM is a good place to document information about these various circuits. I wonder if there is any relation like for Camino de Santiago trail to document such cycling route infrastructures, adding in a relation the infrastructures such as campings, repair shops, etc.

Hi Dave,

The Danube Cycle Path (Donauradweg) is arguably one of the best in the
world. Here is a camping site for cyclists near Linz:
http://osm.org/go/0JhPQJjmt--?m= . As you can see the camping site is
mapped with an address and a name.

There are such camping sites every 40 - 50 kilometers. There is usually
a kitchen, washing machines, etc. Everything in excellent condition and

The Danube Cycle Path (Donauradweg) goes all the way from Vienna to
Linz, to Passau, on so on for hundreds kilometers on both sides of the
Danube river. It is very popular route.

During a long distance cycling tour one may want to visit also a bicycle
shop for a repair, a hospital or a pharmacy, a supermarket, sometimes a
hotel, etc. In such a case almost everything is cycling infrastructure.

Best regards
