  adding biking directions in the U.S. to Google Maps."This new tool will
  open people's eyes to the possibility and practicality of hopping on a bike
  and riding," said Andy Clarke, President of the League of American
  Bicyclists. "We know people want to ride more, and we know it's good for
  people and communities when they do ride more - this makes it possible. It is
  a game-changer, especially for those short trips that are the most
  polluting," <br>
  <br>
  Users can now choose biking when deciding how to get to their destination,
  starting today, March 10, 2010. If you're one of the 57 million Americans who
  ride a bike, mapping your daily commute, and planning recreational or trail
  rides just became easier. According to Google this has been the most
  requested addition to Google Maps, and the League is delighted that they have
  chosen the National Bike Summit to unveil this new feature. Google's announcement
  further proves the importance of the Summit and the bicycle movement in

  <br>
  This new feature includes: step-by-step bicycling directions; bike trails
  outlined directly on the map; and a new "Bicycling" layer that
  indicates bike trails, bike lanes, and bike-friendly roads. The directions
  feature provides step-by-step, bike-specific routing suggestions - similar to
  the directions provided by our driving, walking, or public transit modes.
  Simply enter a start point and destination and select "Bicycling"
  from the drop-down menu. You will receive a route that is optimized for
  cycling, taking advantage of bike trails, bike lanes, and bike-friendly
  streets and avoiding hilly terrain whenever possible. <br>
