Google today added bicycle directions to its Google Maps for Android. Apparently launched to coincide with National Bike Month this month, the biking directions also adds a bike lane layer to Google Maps, so you can decide to ride on bike-only trails, roads with bike lanes or roads that just allow bikes. Google notes that the biking layer and terrain layer offer an idea of when to expect that killer hill on your bike trip. In addition, Google is also offering a new desktop shortcut for navigation, as well as improved sharing of location and navigation data in apps like Buzz, Facebook and Twitter.
