International Cycling Routes-Open Cycle Map

A friend sent me this link which shows cycling routes globally. Has anyone used this map before?

I looked at some areas Iím familiar with and the routes looked decent.

Any idea on how the routes might be selected and updated?OpenCycleMap.org - the OpenStreetMap Cycle Map

I like! Not sure what the symbols SCT, MT, etc mean. When you zoom in close the local paths and bike lanes are there. For the most part. Thanks for the link.

In looking at the areas I am very familiar with, it's quite current. It has the correct detour for a section of bike trail that was closed last summer for light rail construction. I'm going to be looking at this a lot! Thanks for the link!!!
