Aww got me excited then found out the bicycle routes are US only :(

Hope that it's true about the UK street view. It's been nearly 10 months since they took the pictures :(

(I meant 10 months since they did my area, not the whole country)

Just found Tom's (re)tweet about it with a link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/google/7407222/Google-Streetview-to-cover-every-UK-road.html
