They sure do! I have submitted a couple of suggestions, which they have implemented. It's good to see them taking some action to improve their bike directions (even though I almost never use them).

They are just about to add the bikeways on Google maps for 4 or so cities here in Canada, so its nice to know they are responsive and want to be correct.
