80 dogs are on the county shelter's euthanasia list for tomorrow morning. 80! Most are on for URI (just a cold) or "deterioration" which means they've been in the shelter so long that they are getting depressed or going stir-crazy and the shelter is running out of space. These are nice, friendly dogs of all breeds. And this is just ONE day's list. I am so sad.

302 Calories in 45 minutes is 468 watts (total output). Assuming 20% efficiency (which is average efficiency for cycling): that's 94 watts to the pedals. That sounds low. Any chance SportyPal isn't taking into account sitting at traffic lights. That would skew your Calorie count low. (If this seems counterintuitive to you, I can explain further.)

I think it does, because it tells you the total time for the trip and the time you were moving. But I don't think it takes into account that I'm riding a fat tired mountain bike instead of a normal bicycle. I can tell you I felt like I burned way more calories! Of course, I've also realized that while my natural, comfortable walk speed is FASTFASTFAST, my natural bike speed is S--L--O--W.
