Calculation is based on MET value of the activity: bicycling, <10 mph, leisure, to work or for pleasure (Taylor Code 115).
MET value = 4.
Caloric expenditures (1-hour duration) by weight:
(man/woman) weighing 50 kg = 200 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 55 kg = 240 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 60 kg = 240 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 65 kg = 260 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 70 kg = 280 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 75 kg = 300 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 80 kg = 320 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 85 kg = 340 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 90 kg = 360 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 95 kg = 380 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 100 kg = 400 calories.
