sf bike maps

Dear Lazyweb,
Why hasn't someone rendered the SF bike map to a bunch of PNGs and made a Google Maps-style draggable interface to it? It takes my computer five seconds to render a given view of the enormous PDF they provide.

Failing that, could anyone point me at a Javascript library for doing this? The PDF→PNG and hosting stuff I got covered, but I don't really need more projects right now.
