Mapping Bike Paths on Google Maps :’-(

Google Maps seems ok for mapping driving routes, but if you are riding a bike you are stuck to mapping based on roads, whether or not there is a bike path which provides a more direct route.  :(

Equally, it seems, people mapping a walking path also cannot use more direct footpaths to map their route… (apparently the walking paths are in beta.  eg – They catch the ability to walk over Dobroyd parade in Haberfield, but not that you can cross Hawthorne Canal near Cafe Bones)
