- Cycling, moderate to long distance, requires a basic level of fitness.

A distance of 5 miles should take around 20 minutes. 1 mile will take around 5 minutes, while 2 miles will take around 10 minutes.
As a general rule, the faster you go, the more calories you will burn exponentially since your body uses more energy to go faster. At a moderate speed per hour you will burn less calories than walking at a faster rate, e.g. a moderate to fast pace.
There may be better choices than cycling. Several studies have found shown high-intensity training (HIIT) significantly reduces total abdominal fat, including visceral belly fat more effectively than lower-intensity exercise like cycling, especially at the lower paces.
5 miles should take about 21 minutes on average.
