When I started openmtbmap.org my primary goal was to get more Mountainbikers to participate in Openstreetmap. From virtually zero MTB Routes and ways classified with mtb:scale, Openmtbmap.org has changed this tremendously. Currently around 2000 people ( ~15.000 Pageviews) visit openmtbmap.org each day. Every day up to 3000 maps are downloaded causing ~ 500GB of traffic.
