I notice one of the exercise options is NOT spinning. So bicycling is the closest option. Would you consider a spin class MODERATE cycling on average? Thanks!

Most of the spinning classes I've seen are pretty intense! Do the exercise bikes in your class have any kind of speedometer on them that shows how fast you're cycling? If so, you could use that speed and enter it here as "bicycling" since the slow/moderate/fast intensity is based on the mph that you've been bicycling. If nothing else, you could probably ask the instructor about how fast you're cycling on average during the class.

Good luck and keep spinning!

I definitely would count it as higher than moderate. Every spin class I've ever been to has been intense from start to finish!

As a spin teacher, I say spin burns lots more calories than cycling....so add them calories..

I think it may do an average. Walking on a treadmill can burn varying calories depending on speed and incline. If I pump up the speed and increase the incline the calories burned on the treadmill at the ...
