  1. As is always the case with these things, they’re vastly under estimating calories burned, for both running and cycling. I burn 126 calories per mile running (75% of body weight at 8:00 miles) and cycling is off by about half (I’ll burn about 1500 calories in 30 miles but I’m averaging 22 mph to do it – my actual speed is 23-28 mph).

    When they calculate these things, it seems to me they go by what an average person can do… say they figure a 5’3″ woman running 12 minute miles or a 5’9″ guy riding 12 mph, well then those calorie expenditures work out. Make sense?

    Point is, you have to take that stuff with a grain of salt.

    • These are good ballpark figures. They can only be averages. Also, not a lot of people rise a bike at 22 mph. If they gave the calories for that they would be off the chart. Don’t Tour de France riders burn around 9000 calories per day? How many people can do that? These are workable. Actually with the new wearable devices, folks can get their calorie burn in fractions if they want.

  2. Exactly why I try to not drink any calories at all. H2O for me!
