I’d also like the feature maps.google.com has, where you can drag the route to avoid/approach desired areas. Perfect for touch.

Personally hoping for bicycle routes myself, but looking at the screenshot it seems unlikely. Equally unlikely is the possibility that someone in charge of the feature set is looking at this comment and considering the change, but I might as well try.

That would be great, I ride my bike all over colorado spring and hate have to zoom way in or scout out the road ahead of time to see if there's a good bike route.

Use Safari and go to maps.google.com and you can get the bike routes. It will also let you save an "App" icon to the screen.

Take a look at the Garmin Edge 800. It specifically creates routes for bicycling and can re-route on the fly. I love my iPhone, but when I'm on the bike, the Edge works great.

Paying $500 for something I want for free kinda defeats the purpose of whining.

Actually no, because dragging somewhere on the map currently moves you around. I think many people would be confused/frustrated when they will drag to move to somewhere and the route will have changed.
