    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.

    Sometimes you just let the rabbits run, but sometimes you gotta let the dogs run.

    Another calculator can be found at www.analyticcycling.com

    Good site even if you don't need a calorie calc.
    There have to be bicycles in heaven!

    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.
