This calorie counter gives a guide to the number of calories you will burn based on your weight, travel speed and distance. Change your profile and the trail distance to gauge how small adjustments can affect the number of calories you can burn.
Calculations are based on your weight of 70 kgs, a walking speed of "Typical speed - 3 mph", a cycling speed of "Leisure cycling - 8 mph" and a trail distance of 8.1 miles.
After walking 8.1 miles you will have burnt 661 calories. Assuming a constant pace and no breaks it will take you 2 hours 41 minutes to cover the distance and you will have taken roughly 18630 steps.
More calories per mile are burnt at very low speeds as you do not have momentum to carry you between strides. Walking at high speeds will burn more calories too as arm swinging and the longer stride use more muscle groups. Those extra muscles burn up extra calories with each step. Carrying a rucksack and walking uphill will also increase your calorie burn.
Burning 661 calories means you will be able to consume:
without feeling any guilt whatsoever.
After 8.1 miles of cycling you will have burnt 337 calories. The trip will take 1 hour to complete assuming no breaks are taken.
Burning 337 calories means you will be able to consume:
extra that day without fear of splitting your trousers!
