I have an exercise bike with a computer and it looks like 100 revolutions of the pedals is 430 meters, this seems like a lot.
I was wondering if there is a good number for converting pedal revolutions to meters.
I figured that without gearing the average bike wheel is 26" (0.66 M) and so the circumference of the wheel is
0.66 * PI = 2.07 M
In this instance one rev is basically 2 meters. The bike's computer seems to think one rev is 4.3 meters.
I really don't know where they get these numbers from and I am trying to make more accurate measurement of my exercise but the computer on the bike shows made up distance figures, calories etc...
