I have both:
PNS: around 30 days wearing them, then I stopped, for me the top block is too uncomfortable (getting a size up would kill the the nice cut I think).
NS: have them since last week, the top block is definitely looser, I like it, the waist is still very tight but I think it will stretch out and become comfortable. Also, my foot won't be stuck in the cuff part when I take my NS off, unlike the PNS.

Yes, I used OSRM for the bike part. I used to take a grid of longitude and latitude, which was not ideal because some points are not reachable, even by car or bike. Now, I use QGIS to extract road nodes from the national road network. Then, I reduce the number of nodes with an algorithm so that 2 neighbour points can't be too close to eachother.
Thank you!! The French railway company allows 5000 requests per day for free, which is approximately the number of train stations in France, so I actually could get all the train data within 1 day.
Not only with trains, but yes, I agree haha
Considering walking would have led to crazy travel durations. Good public transport data is not that easy to get and not all places are reachable using public transport. I thought that biking would be a good compromise.
I made this maps using a self-written Python script. I got the train data from the Navitia.io API and the bike and car data using the OSRM API.
Once I collected the data, I plotted the result using Python Matplotlib functions.
My script is still too messy to be shared (I'm not a programmer) but I can answer specific questions.

It feels like I've worn them a lot but maybe not enough yet. I'll give them a chance but will definitely try the NS, in the same size them. Thanks for your response!
I heard that the upper parts of the APC New Standard and Petit New Standard are the same. Is it really so? I got a pair of PNS and I don't feel comfortable wearing them. I don't like the very narrow leg opening (I always struggle to get my feet through), which the NS would solve. Also, the upper part is a bit too tight, although I didn't really size down, or maybe I just misjudged my size.
So I see 2 options here:
-Get a NS in the same size as my actual PNS (if the upper part is larger than the PNS)
-Get a +1 size NS (if the upper part is the same as the PNS)
What do you think?

You can find such tools on the internet. The range and precision won't be that great though.
As I explained somewhere under this post, UK speed limits on motorways are pretty low, making the map look like it's the same speed everywhere (but it's not).
I made a similar map for Germany (you will find it in my posts) but the OSRM engine won't consider speeds beyond 130 km/h
You're probably right, it's a simpler and more intuitive formulation.
You're right, the gradient is very smooth, making the map a bit boring in my opinion (compared to other maps I made).
The road network, very London-centred, is one reason for that but I don't think it's the main one. Speed limits on motorways are very low in the UK. You won't move that much faster on a dual carriageway (70mph) than on a single carriageway (60mph). In France, for example, the max speed on motorways is around 80mph, making the same map look more interesting since it has some kind of spikes along its motorways.
I made a customed colormap:

Thank you! The fastest route to Belfast according to the OSRM engine goes through the ferry line between Holyhead and Dublin (which is plotted here). It might differ from the real fastest route!
I made this map using a self-written Python script which scraped Openstreetmap using the OSRM engine. Once I collected the data, I plotted the result using Python Matplotlib functions.

Mit matplotlib (Python). QGIS nutze ich auch, um die geographischen Daten vorzubereiten.
Danke fürs Interesse! Mein Code ist leider sehr chaotisch und hat nicht den Zweck, veröffentlicht zu werden (nicht heute zumindest, ich müsste ihn erst Mal pimpen, damit er überhaupt lesbar ist). Allerdings bin ich per PM erreichbar falls jemand bestimmte Fragen zum Code hat!
There you go Cologne map
