Bike Calorie Calculator

Hello!! I'm just starting working with arduino in college and I'm having difficulties doing the bike calorie calculator project where we have to measure the calories burnt while riding a bike. I can't find any information about it online and i would really appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you so much!

I googled "how to measure calories burned while riding a bicycle" and a great deal of information turned up.

I did not read it all, but I imagine something useful is in the pile.

@persepolix, please do not cross-post. Other threads removed.

Any reference to this specific project?

I'd say measure the power output over time, correct for human power efficiency, and you have the calories this human burnt.

Add in how much O2 is being used and ... well actually that’s all you need to measure..

Not that easy to measure that. You need to measure the O2 concentration in the inhaled air, in the exhaled air, and the volume of air in/exhaled.

Don”t forget, riding a bicycle takes way less calories than walking / jogging / running at same speed.
