If you click on a section of the generated route a dialog box will appear allowing you to rate that section's perceived safety on a scale of 1-7, this will affect future generated routes. Also the system tends to prefer residential streets and cycleways over major roads, and prefers roads with bike lanes or signed bicycle routes.
