How does stand up cycling compare to other forms of exercise?

The Exercise and Physical Activity Resource Center at the University of California, San Diego conducted a metabolic study to determine how riding an ElliptiGO bike compares to running and traditional cycling. They determined that stand up cycling burns, on average, 33% more calories than riding a conventional bike at the same speed. The study also found that going 16.5mph on an ElliptiGO bike was equivalent in effort to running at an 8 minute per mile pace.
