withoutyouitsjustnot.us - the OpenStreetMap Cycle Map
So here is why you should trust Openmtbmaps: Five high contrast layouts optimized for the different Garmin GPS. One layout for Desktop use. Clear differentiation between all street types. Routes shown prominently besides not instead of the streets differentiated by colour for type and based on importance Navigation - Advanced autorouting for mtbikers, cyclists and hikers.
You can plan your routes and tracks on your desktop using the same maps as on your GPS. Contourlines integrated nearly worldwide based on the excellent viewfinderpanoramas.
Much higher quality in mountainous regions than the generally used void filled SRTM3". Map Incomplete or wrong? You can participate and add missing to OSM. I update the maps weekly, so every week the maps become better and more complete!
GoodDocumentation because everything you want and need to know for using the maps is found on Openmtbmap.

As it shows less detail, it is quicker to understand. Who can use the openmtbmap? I was right; it took me months to memorise my eight-mile route from home in north London to work in Kensington.
Google Maps must improve if it wants cyclists to use it | Technology | The Guardian
I appreciated that the app gave me two warnings before I needed to turn off a road, and automatically recalculated my route if I accidentally went off course. It was annoying at best and at worst puts safety in the hands of an app, which could be dangerous for cyclists.
Londoner Jack Dobson-Smith regularly cycles between Clapham and the City of London and would like to see Google Maps calculate routes where his bike is allowed on public transport and more choice of the type of routes he can take.
She wishes the app could indicate cycle parking, but her main reason for shunning the app is down to wanting to feel safe. The routes it suggests all go straight along main roads. The main use of a cycle app in London — at least for me — is identifying where the safe routes are.
It offers a choice of four different route modes, based on the type the user wants, and saves previous routes. It also tells you how many calories a route burns, how many traffic lights you will encounter, and how busy it is. There are an increasing number of rival apps aimed at cyclists: And when I have dragged myself out of bed, half-asleep, only to arrive somewhere early, I wish the app could estimate the journey time based on my average speed.
