Can someone please tell Google Maps about that bright magenta new bike path?

*UPDATE* Google has made the required changes, and we can now say that while it may not be shorter distance, it’s the same time and a higher speed, therefore more fun, therefore a better route! Your drop into Canada st is only 1 meter, but the drop from Pitt st is 2 meters. It also follows a special optimal curve called a Brachistochrone curve something I learned recently – it will always win – this is the fastest way to roll a ball down hill.   

I know it just opened and all but… 🙂

Here be the issue: 1 Canada to 124 Nelson should include this new bright magenta piece of awesomeness:
