This weekend we have the perfect excuse to combine two of the greatest joys in life: chocolate and cycling!
But just how much cycling does it take to burn off those eggs-tra Easter calories?
One Mini Egg: 15 calories
Mini Eggs may be small but can be very moreish. Although they’re perfect for a quick chocolate fix, you could find you’ve polished off the whole bag 10 minutes later. But if you can curb your Easter indulgence to just the one, it would take around two minutes of cycling to burn off the calories.
One Crème Egg: 150 calories
It’s a quintessential Easter treat, but you won’t be surprised to find that the Crème Egg packs in the calories. It would take you around 40 minutes of cycling at a steady pace to burn off those creamy calories.
One small Easter egg (186g): 900 calories
Considered a staple item in your Easter weekend diet, the typical chocolate egg will fuel 120 minutes of cycling. But with the extra day off work over the Bank Holiday, it’s the perfect time to get the bike out in the spring sunshine and have a guilt-free weekend of sweet treats.
