Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi there, Might be a stupid question, sorry if so. The legend doesn't clarify what is meant on the cycle map by the purple lines tagged 'NB' (United Kingdom) - e.g. on Old Wimpole Road. Can anyone clarify? Cheers

It's the National Byway. It's shown as purple on the cycle map. The relation through Cambridgeshire is this one. It's tagged as a "regional cycling network". See also their website.

This indicates a National Byway. The NB label comes from the ref=NB tag.
