Yes thats a problem.
In Basecamp, you can only uncheck it by selecting the activity to "none", 
this is only possible after you have made a route.
On your Etrex it should be possible to unckeck it in the bicycle routing preferences,
but on my Oregon 600 you can't.

Unfortunately yes, for each activity you now need a separate map or stick with the old units / firmware / Mapsource.
Maybe hiking and cycling can be combined, but in my part of the world (NL's)
cycling and car driving can't. I'm afraid Garmin is aware of this or even care about it.
