Distance is more important. If I ran for 35 minutes, that would be over 4 miles, which would be over 400 calories for me (at 140 pounds). I also agree that biking would burn more than 500 calories in an hour, even at a moderate pace of 15mph. 4 years The questions are too generic. For example, if you bike at 17 mph for an hour, you burn close to 1000 calories, way more than you would swimming. Also, 12 mph is not jogging, that's a super fast walk. northen123 5 years Conditions and the person's weight can greatly change the amount of calories burned - I think this quiz is a lil' bit flawed. 5 years and I always wonder if the hiking figure is only for going uphill or if it's an average of uphill and downhill. GirlOverboard 5 years I always find the "hiking" one to be a bit of a trick question. The amount you burn can really fluctuate depending on the incline, terrain and speed at which you're hiking. I hiked a little over 11 miles on a trail that was mostly flat gravel/pebble (only about 2 miles were dirt trail with incline/decline). In this particular case, I only hiked about half of it at a consistent speed and had to move slowly in the last half due to injury, but had that not been the case, would I have burned more calories on this hike, or on previous 6-8 mile hikes on much steeper trails? Surely if the steeper hikes were the same distance, I would have burned more calories overall?
