How many calorie have i burned?

I have started to cycle to and from work as part of my CV work. Can anyone guestimate roughly how many calories I would burn in there and back.

Heres the details;

*16 miles round trip
*Kinda rolling hills
*Takes about 28 minutes there, 28-30 back
* I weight 13st 5
*My bikes a ****ty mountain bike

Thanks

    I would guess around 500Kcals. Almost the equivalent of:

    2 slices of linseed bread
    3 whole eggs
    half tine of heinz beans
    bit of lurpak

    Maybe 500 if your lucky but thats probably riding fast [which you are for a ATB] ,try riding there on just the back wheel and DB curl at the same time with two 20kg plates in your ruck sack. .Actually its been that windy here recently that it feels like.

    Weight loss may slow down cycling also,though not by much,you're going to get a nice fitness level mate,will help at the gym

    So you're managing 32-35 miles per hour on a mountain bike? Seriously doubt it somehow.

    SCN said that he's managing about 16 miles per hour if you look at what he's written.

    A 16 mile round trip. Which takes about an hour to complete in total.
