How do you all calculate calories burned?
How do you all calculate calories burned? It is so difficult on a bike, depending on speed, wind, hills, wheel size, tires and pavement roughness. I weigh 190 pounds, 53 years old, and I do mostly commuting, which means a lot of stops and starts. Assuming no wind, reasonably smooth asphalt and average stops, I have an overall trip speed of 15 mph and a cruising speed of around 17 mph. So I put myself down for 700 calories an hour. Does that sound reasonable to you all?
