Hi there.

The colours on the map used to have a key underneath but clearly i forgot to add that in the new look and feel.

I will do that over the coming weeks, but for now here is the explanation:

Red : Excellent
Blue : Good
Purple : Other recommended

Sometimes when the routes overlap there is a clash and it is not so easy to see the colour from that.

I'll keep improving it as i get time and feedback.

I hope you like BBR!

I understand red/blue/purple, but what about the other colours ...brown, orange... There really needs to be a colour-code key or the website is useless!

Hi there

Thanks for the feedback.

I understand that the interface is not optimal but saying it is useless doesn't really give me any information to help improve it.

Which colours for what would you like to see?

Let me know and I'll see what's possible.

All.the best

David, I’m sorry I sounded rather negative with my comment. It really is a very good website but I was frustrated as I had spent a long time searching for information on the colour coding of the routes shown. I eventually found this forum entry where you note the three colours, red, blue and purple, as excellent, good and other. However, your map of Northern Spain which I was looking at has other route colours too ...brown and orange. What are these?

It would be helpful to have the colour-key somewhere where it can be easily seen, the site would then be brilliantly useful.

Thank you ...and keep up the good work !

Hi there, thanks for your reply

Reagarding the map, at this time only three colours are used appear, red, blue and purple.

The other colours that you can see are where colours overlap (i,e, where multiple routes overlap one another).

I could (for example) make the highest rated routes appear in black, there would still be some mixing of the other colours but I think at least the most highly rated routes would be shown clearly.

Ideally there would be a filter on the map but that is quite a bit of work and I am busy with some other improvements for the time being, so I don't want to promise that at this time.

Let me know what you think/other ideas that you might have.

All the Best
