Google Maps 'Bike There' Option

I think online petitions are kind of funny. But I like this idea: Google Maps 'Bike There' Feature Request.
The feature would take into account actual bicycle lanes from the locality being mapped, and it would automatically plan a route for a bicyclist, possibly even providing the cyclist options for either the most direct route, or the most bicycle-friendly (safest) route.
It would be nice to be able to minimize hills on the route as well. The Cycling in Cities and Translink route planning tool has a maximum slope option.
