near impossible to say. Even heart rate monitors, and cycle computers can only give an educated estimate.
The only way to find out for sure is to get some sports science types to examine your performance using a breath analyser.

Just to throw another spanner in the works, but I've been told it can also be affected by fitness levels. An unfit person will generally be less efficient, so to speak, so will burn an ungodly number of calories, whereas a fit person will barely even register any moderate activity.
