Which editor and where can you get it (Windows and/or Mac and/or Linux ...)
Just the standard in-browser iD editor.

cycle.travel often struggles to generate a circular route. I thought I was just unlucky with a particular start/end point but for me it seems to be more often than not I get a "Sorry - couldn't find a circular route. Try a different destination or a longer route." message.
Let's say Woking to Dorking (anywhere in those towns) - no luck. Or to Ashtead (so I can try out Bike Beans café).
Is it me, a bug or just the massive difficulties to get an algorithm to find something good?

As of half an hour ago, it won't send you that way - it'll go round via Nethy Bridge instead. I'll write more about why in due course, but suffice it to say that it should now be better at finding sensible routes in rural Scotland.

Yep, exactly that.andrew_s wrote:Do I assume that the traffic data is the most recent available from some government source, rather than using the live phone tracking data that shows up on Google Maps?
That's a brilliant idea. Will try and work that in.jamesgilbert wrote:As there seems to be no limit to what you can do, it would be nice if there was a link to the ferry details (for the Oban to Fort William example on your website), in the route directions...
