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

Hi, I have a question about different map layers. Why the general map layer and the cycle map layer are not the same? For example I have edited the map, deleting one road which does not exist anymore. It was Ok on the general map, when I switched to cycle layer the road is still there? Do I need to update something?

The maps are updated on different schedules so it is normal for them to be different where changes have been made recently. The standard layer typically shows changes much more quickly than the cycle layer. Even on the standard layer, the update frequency depends on the zoom level.
