So today I went to Leicester and then I bought a bicycle. Had a little go on it (the light was going), and it's true, you don't forget. I spoke a bit to the guy who runs the bike shop (it's the little one in the corner of the Town Hall) and he seemed interested in the mapping. The cycle maps they did have done partly by the city council, from 1998, have now all run out and the council are not interested in reprinting, despite demand from customers! Gave him the link to the cycle layer. They could certainly sell printed OSM cycle maps of Leicester. Hopefully not too distant I will have got all the data acquisiton done and then we can see about doing that sort of thing.
