Up and down slope

Hello all... I’m trying to analyze bike routes (based on shortest time/ ease of commuting) from sources to destinations and I’m using network analyst’s closest facility tool for the same. In the analysis I want to include slopes. Meaning if the bike path is taking a down-slope, the average speed of the commuter will increase and if it goes up-slope the average speed will be decreased by some factor. In have a contour map and have created TIN. I used the TIN to extract z values to junctions (points) and spatially joined these z values to the street data. Not sure how to proceed after this. How do I make the program identify up or down slope while deriving the shortest/easiest routes.
