Terre,

That's what I said, just a little more technical.

LOL....Pete you are so funny!

Brunette...Don't listen to him :)
Go to Fitness and use the search put in bike.
It will give a choice of: Stationary Bike Moderate or Stationary Bike Vigorous.
Then put in the time you did.
I found these close to my gym's bikes.
So If you are really into it one day and sweat up a storm I would use the Vigorous. If your having a slower day and just kinda sweaty use the Moderate.

If you divide the diameter of the wheel of the bike by the size of the pedal times twice the size of your shoe--you should be close. And don't forget to sweat!

Hi Brunette! Personally I would think the SP tracker would be pretty accurate b/c it should take into account all of your needs & personal info. Sticking w/SP is what I would do.

Brunette! I donít know that anything that doesnít take weight into consideration can be really accurate.

My suggestion would be to chose one and stick to it just like with scales you look for accuracy. If you consistently use the same one you are getting consistent information.

It isnít the perfect answer but then we arenít in a perfect world are we! emoticon

Peace Barbara

(I posted this on another team and got little help so I'm posting here as well, hope that's ok)

I was biking on my stationary bike last night and according to my bike (my bike doesn't take into account weight or anything) it said I burned 100 calories. When I enter it on SP it says I burned 224 on the stationary bike. If I used the Cycling under 10-11.9 mph (bicycling, biking, bike riding) it's 180 calories.

Another website I used to use often (www.healthstatus.com/calculate/cbc) says it's 162.



I'm just trying to figure out which one to use so I can get a better idea of how many calories I'm really burning!!!!
I hate to have to take an average because then I have to look it up all over the place before each activity. lol.

Any suggestions?

In the other group people told me that machines that take your weight into consideration are best, well that's not helpful considering my machine does not.

So what is the most accurate calories burned number?
