    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

    Not able to ride a loop through Elk Island due to non-paved sections at both the western gate access point, as well as a non-paved road leading in from the northwest (Twp Rd 544...it's not paved coming into the turn-off for the park).

    Anyone who rides with me through Elk Island will be forced to hear the story about a bison ramming our vehicle a few years back... ;)

    One of my favourite places to ride for sure! It was a balmy 32C when we started out. Awesome roads, scenic, hardly any cars, and the speed limit is 60km/hr. No “bison incidents”; just pedalled by the ones grazing by the side of the road and did NOT make eye contact, ha, ha!
