Realistic biking distances, pgRouting

Posted by smathermather on December 2, 2013

In an upcoming recipe (another one for the cutting room floor), we’ll play a bit with realistic biking distances, as compared with a 5-mile buffer (light grey), a 5-mile driving distance (dark grey), and a 5-mile biking-on-roads-with-speed-limits-under-40mph (purplish).

A diagram of realistic biking distance as compared with buffers and driving distance.
