Q:

# How many calories can you burn in a 35-mile bike ride done in 2:22?

A:

The calories burned while cycling depend upon three factors — the weight of the rider, the cycling speed, and the duration of the ride, according to Calories Burned HQ. A rider weighing 138 pounds burns about 1,556 calories while cycling for 2 hours 22 minutes over a 38-mile distance.

Taking these variable factors into consideration, the Calories Burned HQ has come up with a simple calculator to determine calories burned by individual riders during specific cycling activities. If the rider is overweight, he requires more energy to cycle. Similarly when cycling at high speed, a rider consumes more calories. The calories burned also increase if cycling is done for a longer duration.
