I’m guessing the only reason you have that lookbehind in there is to prevent the substitution from breaking the top-level ‘/‘ route?

Also, is there anything wrong with using “forward” here instead of “redirect”?  I’d rather save the HTTP round-trip and not “correct” the browser, as my app really does not care.
