Hi, when you use the routing option provided on the openstreetmap.org site, the calculated route is displayed as a blue line on the map. There's a big disadvantage when you're interested in a bicycle route and therefore use the cycle map: it displays dedicated cycling paths in lue as well.

I do not find any option to change the colour of the routing. Is there any? Is there any place to suggest that the default colour on osm.org should not be blue?

Thanks, Peter

For the lack of answers to your real question I might at least offer two alternative services (for parts of Europe): http://brouter.de/brouter-web/ , http://zikes.website/#

The place to report bugs and ask for improvements on the osm website is https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website Since it might take some time before someone picks up your request, let alone implement it, you could use one of the websites TZorn recommended or http://cycle.travel/ which is also based on OSM-data and maintained by a long-time OSM contributor.
