How does the cycling model work?

Details of how the cycling model works, including how elevation impacts cycling speeds.

Updated over a week ago

The cycling model uses any routes where cycling is permitted (including cycle paths), while not allowing routes where cycling is not possible (e.g motorways).
The cycling speed on any particular route is determined by the associated change in elevation, ranging from 5 km/h on a steep incline to 60 km/h on a steep decline. On a flat route the speed is 20 km/h.
