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.

Park at Round Church in Richmond. Starts off with a climb out of Richmond. On 116 there will be a moderate climb out of Hinesburg. On 17 "Baby Gap" will warm the legs up with some pretty good up. Then a break till the base of App. Gap. That is a good climb, with a 17% grade for the last 500 meters or so. Turn around and descent it, then right onto Main road and back to the Round Church. It's mostly down/flat, which is nice.
