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.

When we opened our Hatherasge store, we decided that it would be the perfect base from which we could explore the Dark Peak. And explore we have! This route starts with having a cup of tea in AK Hathersage. You'll need that cup of tea, as the first 7 km take you up and out onto Shatton Moor on your way over to Bradwell. Stop for an icecream at Bradwell (you won't regret it) before winding round to Hope and climbing over Win Hill leads you down to the River Ashop where it joins the reservoir. From then on, it's plain sailing all the way back to Hathersage for a recovery brew at the shop (with maybe a few small hills along the way...).
We have lots of detailed guides to help you get the most out of plotaroute.com. Here's a selection:
