Daily calorie burn while riding

It burns calories–hundreds of the them–while you are out there turning the pedals. Even at a recreational pace of 13 to 15 mph, you burn 500 to 600 calories in one hour. That’s about 4,000 per week–enough to burn off more then a pound–if you ride just an hour every day. An hour of walking, on the other hand, burns just 150 to 250 calories while jogging only burns between 350 to 450 calories.
