If you burned 20 calories a mile on a 37 mile ride then you would burn 740. Now, even if you worked 3 times as hard and burned 60 calories a mile on a 7 mile ride, you would still fall short (420 calories). That is of course dependent on your weight, the wind, how many hills and a multitude of other factors. I'm not a trainer or a physician, but I think- the longer you stay in the saddle the more calories you will burn, the more weight you will lose.
