Google Maps Adds Bike Routes

Are you trying to find the best way to bike to work or to the beach?
Google Maps now provides routes by car, public transit, walking, and bicycling.

The Google team hasn’t been to all of the United States, but has gathered data and recommended routes from people around the country. In fact, they’re still gathering data and would be happy to have you add suggestions and report problems to the team.
Here’s the Google warning:
Google Bicycling directions are in beta.
Use caution and please report unmapped bike routes, streets that aren’t suited for cycling, and other problems on the Google Maps site.

Google Walking directions are also in beta.
Use caution ? The routes may be missing sidewalks or pedestrian paths.
