Not sure how to put this but here goes

If you travel the equavlant of 24 miles in 8th gear on a 8 speed Exercise bike what distance would that be equal to when traveling on a bicycle on a level road . Taking into account that you have no wind resistance to contend with on a Exercise bike ?

All guesswork.

The only meaningful way to compare is hours in the saddle and average HR.

You can't even compare heart-rates directly.
Because of the lack of a cooling wind on an exercise bike I always sweat heavily and have a higher heart-rate as a result.
