    About the Calorie Calculator

    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.

    About

    This is a challenging ride that includes a few challenging climbs. The Struggle from Ambleside, as the name suggests is a test for any cyclist. The ride up St Johns in the Vale, round Thirlmere and over Dunmail Raise is a challenge but on relatively quiet roads. Red Bank from Grasmere is lesser known but still a very steep and often greasy undertaking under the trees. The route starts and finishes at Alpkit Ambleside
