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.

For The Courage Ride's 10th year we have expanded to add a gravel grinding route. This 82 mile route is gravel for all but a handful of miles and includes a 3-4 mile section of "B" level road east of North English. Shares all the rest stops with the regular paved road routes. Over a mile of elevation gain over mostly rolling terrain. Options to loop back at several points for shorter distances or re-ride the first loop for an epic 103 miles total.
