Spring Into Action and Guess the Calories Burned!

Ah, Spring, I'm so glad you're here. After all those short Winter days, I'm anxious to hop on my bike and enjoy the evening sun.

I agree with the comments above, but it gives a general idea of the amount of calories you can burn with the activities.

I with the previous comments. The "correct" answer here isn't necessarily correct or even the closest, which made the quiz much less fun than usual.

i agree with the above 2 comments, but it's a fun quiz to get a relative idea. worked for a couple hours in the garden yesterday. dug a huge hole to plant my fig tree. now i'm noticing aches in muscles that i haven't felt in a looooong time.

I agree with misskacie -- the questions are very generalized and not giving enough specifics.

Hmm, way too general. I thrive on accuracy. What kind of cycling? How intense of a hike, and what kind of incline?
