So, I take it my comment on the map rendering "yes" with bike routes  
looking lame is pure vanity on my part?   =)

The info you all sent is great! And, as Gregory mentioned, assuming we  
United Statseans are advanced enough to put bike boxes (ASLs) in every  
direction at every light gives us too much credit. Most I'm thinking  
of are on one-way streets without a corresponding one on the  
intersecting street.
