This page is your friend.

I think it calculates a little high, but it should get you in the ballpark. It calculates 1257. Cyclestats says about 850 for me, and I outweigh you by about 15 lbs.

The "rule of thumb" for cycling is 40 calories per mile.

Maybe if you're under 150 pounds...

Go to:

There is a calorie counter. Plug in your speed, weight, time, and get a number.
It is an estimate at best. Obviously if someone drove you to a top of a mountain and you coasted down….You get my point.

But for general use, it OK.
