preparing data fro network analyst

Discussion created by lucika17 on Nov 2, 2013
I have a collection of data sets that I want to use in a network analysis for the shortest route analysis for a cyclist. Data layers are road network, cycle paths. Problem is that sometimes the cycle network lies on the top of the road network but does not align properly. I am not sure how to use the data in network analysis. Should i merge these two data sets first and use the feature to line tool to create intersections of the street and cycle network, or is this a case of a multimodal network?

MAny thanks
