Petitioning Google for Bike There Feature

Some smarty has started a petition to get Google Maps to add a "Bike There" feature that would allow those of us on two wheels to get there without ending up on a freeway. (Which is what happened to me when I first moved here and took my scooter on "Pennsylvania Avenue" toward Accokeek. Turns into a freaking highway! But it's still called "avenue!") I do ride a bike, too.

    Ha, scooter.

    It'll be good if the map shows the quickest way to bike somewhere, but ALSO bike paths which are way safer than biking on the roads along with bus, truck and car divers!

    I love this idea and I would love to help Google create such a map by monitoring the cycle routes in my area.
