Calculation is based on MET value of the activity: bicycling, 10-11.9 mph, leisure, slow, light effort.
MET value = 6.8.
Caloric expenditures (1-hour duration) by weight:
50 kg (man/woman) = 340 calories.
55 kg (man/woman) = 408 calories.
60 kg (man/woman) = 408 calories.
65 kg (man/woman) = 442 calories.
70 kg (man/woman) = 476 calories.
75 kg (man/woman) = 510 calories.
80 kg (man/woman) = 544 calories.
85 kg (man/woman) = 578 calories.
90 kg (man/woman) = 612 calories.
95 kg (man/woman) = 646 calories.
100 kg (man/woman) = 680 calories.
