Watts used in talking/singing
 
Does speech use any recognizable amount of energy, in terms of an endurance bicycle ride?

Lets say you go on a long ride, and chat it up the whole time. Would it affect your reserves at all?

I know its minor... but how minor? Anyone have any idea?

Discuss chatting while riding... or singing while riding :) (its fun to sing loudly on a descent)
