I think your best bet is probably a general indoor cycling entry. It's hard to know for sure if the calories burned will be correct unless you're wearing a heart rate monitor, but it's probably the best guess you have available in the tracker.

Sorry I'm not more help!

I bought a mini cycle a few days ago. I have been trying to figure out what to classify the exercise as. I have it set to the maximum resistance. Should this be classified as an indoor bicycling event? I don't use my SPAT when doing this exercise because it just doesn't seem to ever figured it up right because it puts it as a bicycle going at 10mph and I don't see how that is right.

any recommendations? I honestly don't care about the classification - just the calories burned being accurate. If I have to log it as running, so be it. I just want the calories burned counted correctly.

Thanks!
