Peloton

Recommended Posts

Anybody?

I picked one up about a month ago because I got sick of the same gym routine for cardio, it’s been pretty f*ckin fun I’m kind of hooked now.

It’s extremely convenient to hop on for a quick 30min ride when your pressed for time, great calorie burn energy expenditure etc etc.

And there are some straight 60min metric climb rides that are absolute crushers.

Pricey piece of equipment/technology but so far worth it.

That's pretty sad...I just felt bad for not having a Peloton in my house now.  I love riding my mountain bike when I have the chance and always wanted a road bike...the peloton looked like something I could enjoy without having to actually hit the road.  Does it have the screen and the different routes per video and can you ride with/against others via software/wifi? How does that work?

Yeah it has a 22” HD Touchscreen. There are about 12 live rides per day of varying difficulty & length. They are instructor based so depending on the ride style they will give a baseline for your bike settings. (but you can go as hard or chill as you want)

Rides are anything from easy 20-30min music based rides to, harder, HITT, Tabata, 60min mountain climbs & metric rides, (keeping a certain speed and resistance for x amount of time heart rate etc (your HRM connects via bluetooth to the bike)

There is a leader board of everyone who’s taking the class in real time, live rides have about 400-600 people in them on avg. All the rides are available as encores and on demand as well.

There are scenic rides were you can just pedal and look at the screen in first person view, from different rides around the world but I haven’t done one.

And they also just came out yesterday with a bunch of none bike workouts, which I haven’t got into yet.
