Thanks for your comments guys.

I contacted cyclingnews and they said:

The main issue is simply going to be whether the indoor cycle is accurate
or not. Most gym cycles I've seen have been terribly inaccurate (above or
below the actual power output). There's also the question of whether the
data is reliable or not (is 290 W on the ***t, 290 W every time you ride
it, or a different amount?).

If we speculate that the 290 W is correct (although it isn't likely to be)
that effort for a 67 kg rider is good effort -- it's likely around what 2nd
and 3rd category racers can do over a 10 mile/16 km TT effort.


Following that, I contacted SportsArt regarding the accuracy of the calorie counter - and they have said they will get back to me.

Cheers,

James
