Having a discussion elsewhere with a guy about calculating calories for a massive ride.
I was thinking that say you had a daily eg. 2000 cal BMR from just existing, walking and doing stuff. You would then add your ride calories on top of that.
So say you did an epic 14 hour ride, 7700KJ, I would add around 2000 cals to that. Total would be 9700cal for that day.
Now he’s saying that the total for the day would just be 7700KJ because BMR is already factored into the ride’s KJ total.
So because you’ve ridden all day basically, your total for the day will be 7700KJ.
Anyone know how to calculate this?
