I'm working on a bike project that spans a number of cities in a region. Some of the cities have their existing bike infrastructure available as open data, but not all.

Is there a way to extract from OpenStreetMap or some other source only the bike infrastructure network, which preferably has a breakdown of facility type (sharrow, bike lane, protected bike lane).

  • It definitely seems like openstreetmap is the way to go, given their extensive rules on tagging bike infrastructure wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bicycle I still need to figure out to download/extract only bike infrastructure though

Yes; go to overpass turbo and build your query based on cycleway tags. It's not guaranteed that OSM will have official open data in it, as manual collection and addition always takes priority over imports.
