CycliStats™ - Bicycle Ride Data
To enter a new ride, click on the "New Ride" button in the upper left
corner on the main Toolbar. This window will
appear, allowing you to add new rides, or edit information from previous rides.
The only required fields are Name, Bike, Date, and
Time. Ride Distance is optional, allowing you to enter stationary trainer rides, spin classes, etc.
Profile / Elevation Gain
Based on ride distance, and where you position the Profile slider, CycliStats will
estimate how much climbing you did - this feature is unique to CycliStats. If you have a more accurate
number for Elevation Gain
(from an altimeter, or a topo map), you can override the estimated value by entering it directly.
Bicycle Calories and Watts
Another unique feature of CycliStats is the way it automatically estimates your Calories burned and Average Watts
for each bicycle ride. If you want to modify the CycliStats estimate, clicking on the calculator button
will display the Calories and Watts Calculator.
The CycliStats formula for computing Calories takes into account:
By taking all of these factors into account, CycliStats is able to make a reasonably accurate
estimate of your actual bicycle Calories burned for each ride. In the Graph and Statistics views, you
can see summaries of your total bicycle Calories burned, by week, month, and year.

- Bike and gear weight
