The website for Survey Department is http://www.survey-dept.slt.lk/. Addy and tel details, as well as maps details and prices are available there.

I am not sure that there is actually a 'national bicycle trail'. The best bet is to take yur bike and start peddling :-). There some fine trails, the cultural traingle area, the hills around N'Eliya, welimada, Bandarawela, of the souhern plains area are good bets. Try contacting the Sri Lanka Tourist Board ( http://www.srilankantourism.org/index.asp ) for information.

Have fun
