Calories expended calculator?

Anyone have suggestions for what you feel is a reliable online calorie calculator for cycling? Or better yet the mathematical equations necessary to compute the number of calories expended given a speed, time, and weight of the cyclist?

I suppose I could figure it out myself (I passed a year of calculus-based physics, but that was some time ago). But if someone else has it posted, no sense in re-inventing the wheel.

TIA.

Another calculator can be found at www.analyticcycling.com

Good site even if you don't need a calorie calc.

I don't know about an online calculator, but here's my method:

After each slice of pizza, burp. If you can't taste it coming back up, you need more.

:thumbup:

(Actually, this is a joke. You will probably gain some weight on this method...)

For me I am 69 inches tall weight 135, ride a Trek 2300 weight 18.5 lbs the log I keep indicated 4 calories per minute 240 per hour, 60 grams of carb's per hour this seems to work well for me. Like 5 fig newtons per hour of riding at between 75 & 80% HR zone 3.
