I'm not looking for a routing engine, but for a website or program that can take a relation and convert it into turn-by-turn directions (such as a cue sheet from a cycle route relation).

Let the routing engine do it's job, this isn't a job for relations.

So how do I tell the routing engine to follow Bike Route 1 from Boston to Cape Cod?

That depends on your routing engine; it's a problem that is entirely independent of the map data assuming that Bike Route 1 has a proper route relation.

Well, part of the reason for asking this question is that I need something that will check that Bike Route 1 does have a proper relation. Got anything?

What do you mean by a "proper route relation"? The Relation Analyzer will check with there's any gaps in the route.

It also has the option of downloading the relation as a GPX track, which you might be able to use with routing software etc.

The Relation Analyzer tells me that there are 27 unconnected segments. But this is because many portions are split into one-way pairs with 'forward' and 'backward' roles, and the analyzer can't handle these.
