The route planning heat maps show all cycling routes combined. This is a problem when trying to plan a route for a road bike, especially in mountainous or outback areas, because it is impossible to distinguish between a paved road and a gravel road. That leaves an annoying sense of doubt when riding in new areas and can even result in having to scrap a planned ride mid-route if turns out to be unpassable on a road bike.

Hello @sbtokyo 

When you're planning a route, you can use the surface filter to choose "prefer paved surfaces" when planning a route for a road bike.  

Also -  we do show different heat maps depending what type of cycling you select.  For example selecting "ride" shows a different heatmap than "Mountain Bike" or "Gravel Ride".
