"Leisure" or "Light" cycling - what the heck? jennconspiracy — May 10, 2018 10:25PM PDT

How about you classify cycling by BPM or watts?

The first 3 miles of my ride = 1200 feet of climbing. My pace is under 10mph (you try it) -- that's not exactly "Leisure" cycling.

Speed is not an indicator of effort -- unless you are on a flat track. Hills and wind (plus traffic lights and cars) can really put a hit on your pace.

Please consider renaming the "levels" of cycling.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We will definitely consider your suggestion for a future update. Thanks for the feedback.

In the meantime, If you know roughly how many calories you are burning with a device like a heart rate monitor or activity tracker, you can add a new exercise by going to “cardiovascular” and then “create new exercise.” Your estimate will be added to your personal database, and not the main database.

All the best,
