Enter the average cycling power (watts) and the total cycling time (min) into the Cycling Weight Loss Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cycling Weight Loss. 

Cycling Weight Loss Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate Cycling Weight Loss.

CWL = CP * T/60 * 3.6 / 3500


  • CWL is the Cycling Weight Loss (lbs)
  • CP is the average cycling power (watts) 
  • T is the total cycling time (min) 

How to Calculate Cycling Weight Loss?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cycling Weight Loss.

  1. First, determine the average cycling power (watts). 
  2. Next, determine the total cycling time (min). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CWL = CP * T/60 * 3.6 / 3500.
  4. Finally, calculate the Cycling Weight Loss.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

average cycling power (watts) = 500

total cycling time (min) = 120

CWL = CP * T/60 * 3.6 / 3500 = ?
