I use a program on my phone to calculate miles and calories burned. The only thing I haven’t done for it is hook up a heart rate monitor to help.

I know that it is more work to ride an MTB that it is a road bike. I’m currently riding an MTB till I get my road bike this winter and am only riding on roads. My question; it has a section that you can input MTB or cycling sport, transportation to calculate calories.

When you input MTB you burn about 1000 more calories.

What would you guy’s set it on.

And don’t tell me to get a computer, because I’ll get one when I get my road bike.

I've cut myself back to 2500 calories a day to cut the weight. The main reason is that there is a monthly contest with the web site that has the program. There is a heated discussion about where you should have your settings and I wanted to get everyone's opinion on what they thought was fair.
