Counting Those Thanksgiving Calories

I'm a Bill Strickland (author of "Ten Points") fan.He writes: The bicycle is the most efficient machine ever created: Converting calories into gas, a bicycle gets the equivalent of three thousand miles per gallon.Jim Fox responded on Adventure Cycling:A gallon of gasoline contains about 31,000 kilocalories (C). A 150-pound rider, averaging about 12 mph, burns about 560 C/hour . Dividing (31,000/560)*12 miles = 700 miles. If the kilocalories burned were exactly proportional to the weight of the rider (which it isn't), a 31-pound rider could get that 3,000 miles! Got all that? If not, you can check out the calories
