How does speed (mph/km) affect your calories burned?

The faster if a person is going the more likely he is to cover miles/kilometers in very less time.But if a person is doing group ride and the other person completes the same distance in slower time then its not necessarily means that you have burned more calories.So the quicker a person exercises the more calories he will burn.

How does incline (downhill / flat / uphill) impact your calorie burn

Downhill and flat surfaces are easy to bike and do not need more strength whereas uphill needs more strength as you go against the gravity. Hence, you burn more calories biking uphill than flat or downhill.

Which One Burn More Calories Biking Vs Running Vs Walking

All the three i.e biking , running and walking are the best physical activities.However running is more effective in burning calories.

According to American Council of Exercise if a person weighs 140 pounds then he is likely to burn 13.2 calories per minute running and that same person would burn 7.6 calories

approximately per walking.So we can figure out that calories burned during running are almost double to that of walking.

Likewise if a person weighs 150lbs and goes for a 1 hour of run at a speed of 5mph for 5 miles he is likely to burn 593 calories compared to the same distance of of biking which will burn around 250 calories.

You burn more calories in running compared to cycling and walking

Do you burn more calories sitting or standing while cycling?

Most of us prefer sitting while cycling but it does not helps in burning more calories.But we all know that standing would be more preferred and if it is coupled with cycling it burns more calories as it helps to increase heart rate and improves the core muscles which would be very effective in the long run.
