Slope impact calculations

Hi there.

I'm trying to figure out how to calculate the impact on time it takes to traverse different inclinations on slope for a wheelchair based network I am constructing, but maths has never been my strong suit.

Say my average wheelchair speed is 0.58m/s, or 2.1 km/per hour, how can I calculate the resulting average speeds on increasing slopes with 1% rises?

Many thanks.
