Bikemap offers numerous map styles to choose from. Map styles are based on our own design or on the existing styles of OpenStreetMap. Find information on how to understand all of Bikemap's maps and find out what the different colours mean in this article.
Bikemap's map styles
The Basic, 3D, Night, Atlas, Outdoors and Landscape map styles are our own creation.
The Basic, 3D, Night and Atlas map styles show cycle paths and important places like bike shops or workshops. Cycle paths are displayed on the map as green lines, with varying shades of green. There are:
- International cycle paths
- National cycle paths
- Regional cycle paths
The Outdoors and Landscape map styles show bike paths in green with no distinction between them. Train stations are shown as red round dots, while other tram stops are shown as white round dots.
The Outdoors map style further shows hiking paths as lines or dots (when zoomed in) in orange or violet.

OpenStreetMap and OpenCycleMap
The OpenStreetMap (OSM) and the OpenCycleMap (OCM) map styles use the maps and designations from OpenStreetMap (OSM). OpenStreetMap is a project in which geospatial data are collected and mapped by local people around the world. The resulting map contains extensive and up-to-date data on streets, paths, shops and much more.
In general: The thinner (or dotted) the line - the more difficult, worse or uneven the condition of the path. Lines are shown in different colours. Their meanings are as follows:
- Red: Tracks which are wide enough for a car to pass
- Black/Grey: Cycleway or paved track
- Blue: Designated bike path
- Green: Single trail / small trail with MTB classification from 0 (easy) to 5 (good trail skills needed)
- Brown: Dirt road
