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.

“This shopping route takes you along a section of London’s famous Piccadilly - the road that runs from Green Park Station to Piccadilly Circus Station. It is famous for its iconic places such as The Royal Academy, the Ritz Hotel, Fortnum and Masons and Piccadilly Circus. Piccadilly is at the crossroads between Mayfair to the north and St James’s to the south.
Piccadilly has been a main road since at least medieval times, and in the middle ages it was known as "the road to Reading". By the middle of the 18th century, Piccadilly had become developed as far as Hyde Park Corner. The development of St James's and Mayfair, in particular, made Piccadilly into one of the busiest roads in London.”
