Google has provided a fresh update to Google Maps for Android, this time adding turn-by-turn, voice-guided navigation for bicycles. Biking directions have been available in the U.S. and Canada since 2010, but not with voice guidance.

Additionally, biking directions are now also available in a number of new countries, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K. Google says that it has more than 330,000 miles of biking directions, and uses color-coded maps to denote bike-friendly routes and the location of steep hills.

Google Maps for Android is an free update.
