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.

A classic Lakes route and a real challenge.
All the major Lakeland passes in one big loop.
We start and finish the ride from the Alpkit Ambleside store and head in an anti-clockwise loop of the Lakes. With Kirkstone, Honnister, Newlands, Whinlatter, Hardknott and Wrynose included, as well as some lesser known but still very challenging climbs this is a proper test.
