Well, when it comes at me, something that I map as "path" cannot
necessarily be cyclable. I mapped all my runs around and some of them
have been in some......challenging paths, definitely not doable (even
downhill) with a bike (even a moutain bike, unless you're in the world
top 10 of bikers...). THese ones are really fun to run on....assuming
you like challenging running..:-)

But, certainly much much much more paths and tracks are not yet
mapped, mostly because....there are a lot of them, particularly in the
moutain parts and in forests.

That's why I currently mostly use Swiss Topo maps, which I print (yay
paperwaste) and hold in my hand while running. They are *very*
reliable and, for instance, when a path is a dead-end on them, it
*really* is a dead end (by ignoring that, I ended up a few times
crossing bushes, rivers, meeting several gentle swiss cows).
