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.

An 'end to end' 12k - map, exact distance and elevations incorrect, (this distance is an estimate) because app not accounting for the tunnels, so adding height and distance. Total rise is about 260 metres over whole distance. A to B is uphill. B to A is down. Nice 10k would be Bakewell Station to the end of 1st tunnel, and back. OR 5k from the Coombs Rd end, beyond Bakewell Station, to the beginning of the 1st tunnel. Can do it as a two car route: Park in Bakewell, at the station car park, get a lift to Monsal Head, climb down to the trail, jog back to the car.
