according to my Polar heart rate monitor that counts calories. After 33 months of owning this, it has counted almost a million caloires! That's a lot of cheeseburgers! Most of the calories come from my daily bike commute and training rides. Although I did wear it a couple times when I climbed Mt. Saint Helens.

Notoriously innacurate, but still a big numberKerry

No doubt you've burnt plenty of calories, but the numbers you get from your Polar are not even close. A 150 lb rider at 20 mph on the flats will burn about 600 calories an hour. I'll bet your Polar gives a very much higher number than that.

Now think of all the food you ate in those 33 months!
