The biking speeds in the tracker are based on outdoor biking, so it's likely to overstate the calories you're burning during an indoor workout. Outdoor biking would have differences in terrain, wind resistance, etc. that you don't encounter inside. So I agree that you would probably be better off to use the lower number.

So when I'm at the gym taking a cycling class I'm on a bike that tracks my mileage and calories burned. In an hour I'm hitting 20 miles and roughly 400-450 calories according to the bike but if I input 20mph on the spark fitness tracker for an hour it increases my calorie intake by a ton. Which would you suggest going by?
