Rumor: Google Maps adding “Go By Bicycle”

google-maps-by-bike

This tip came through the twittersphere via Cyclelicio.us who heard from a friend of a friend that Google Maps may be adding a “Go By Bicycle” option to it’s mapping.  It already has By Car, By Public Transportation and Walking option for finding directions, and this would be a super cool addition that, if nothing else, gets people to start thinking about making small trips by bike.

Google Maps routing by bicycle has been available through the GMAPS pedometer for quite some time—but it’s not terribly accurate. Worth checking out until Google launches their own version.

Unfortunately, I haven’t heard anything more about this since I tweeted the rumor.
