    i truly depends on quite a few factors, and the answer could vary into the hundreds of calories.

    how much you weigh and how hard you pushed are two of the main factors. Was your heart rate maxed out, or could you easily have a conversation? It is tough to know a true figure without a heart rate monitor..however biking may be in the database?

    just by point of comparison, I burn around 450 calories in 45 minutes, and I weigh 140-ish. But, there are lots of factors. . .
    Before I had a HRM, I used "cycling. . .moderate" and that was pretty close.
