That is about the same as the "stationary bike: vigorous effort" option.

I guess if you know the wattage of the excercise and your weight you could work out the calorie burn... I might look that up...
Yep, about 12 calories/minute for me too. Which is about the same as the 7.5 mile/hour running that I've been using lately.
