Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Where to? “My commute from work is perfect! I ride up to Southbank from Battersea and along the river to Greenwich, past some amazing landmarks and with almost no roads or traffic to worry about. I’m pretty lucky to have such a great ride home in the evenings, but even better than going solo is group riding. Giving your bike a beasting alongside a bunch of mates is the best feeling.”
How long? “It’s about 10 miles. If I told you how long it took me, you’d know I was riding too fast.”
With what? “I’d take a Phil Wood Track Hub Set (£460). A wheel is made up of three components – the hub, the rim and the spokes. Hubs make the wheel spin freely and smoothly, and these are super stylish, made by a real legend, and are so durable that I bet they’ll outlive you. I love them.”
