Google cyclepath?

I use Google maps frequently and love the overlay of satellite images with maps.  The combination of satellite pictures and then being able to zoom in using spy plane pictures is incredible.

And Google streetview with pictures taken from the top of a car is just Big Brother and occasionally comes in handy, but I hadn't given much thought to how Google would capture images on pathways where the car couldn't go.

But look at what I spotted in Perpignan whilst on holiday...

I did a quick Google search and they have been using the trike for over three years and you can even go online and suggest new spots for them to film.

Virtual tourism - wow!
