Map Legend

 Following is a map Legend so you can see what is what. This is based on two different layouts in the following order for all highways/lines: traditional - Desktop layout. Then Velo Layout (the classic layout for GPS use). There is also a "race" layout for road/race cycling not shown here. It is based on the velo layout, but shows some less information (leaving out information not needed for race/road cycling).

 

Quick guide to the colors used for ways and tracks:

Black: Cycleway or paved track.

Grey: usually unpaved way of lesser quality.

Brown: Path - or footway - the smaller the dots/segments of the line - the less even the surface. Thin continuous lines are of unknown qualit</surface.

In general for brown/red/grey ways: If a way is not rated for difficulty - it will be shown as continous line.

Note that I map other keys to tracktype to give a better description. So I simply assume it is as difficult as tracktype=gradeX.
