How to use a Peloton Bike

Peloton's indoor bicycle has a built-in wireless touch screen that lets you stream live or on request to get a great workout at home. Your Peloton bike must be supplied and installed by professionals so that it can be calibrated and connected. But when you're done, it's easy and fun to use your bike! Adjust the bike to be comfortable for you and select your first ride from the touchscreen menu. Eventually, you will become fluent in the lingo and you may even want to join a tribe of riders who share some of your interests.

[ Edit ] Step

[ Edit ] Adjusting the seat

  1. Turn the lever under the seat to the left to release it. Find the lever that adjusts the height of the seat that is on the frame of the bike under the seat. Turn it to the left or counterclockwise to release it. Turn it so that the seat is loose enough to move up and down. [1]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 1.jpg
    • Let the lever hold some tension on the seat so that it does not slide far down when you adjust it.
  2. Stand next to the bike and move the chair so that it is in line with the hip. When the seat is loose enough to move, use your hands to raise it up or down. Move the seat so that it is in line with the hip bone so that it adjusts to the correct height. [2]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 2.jpg
    • Adapting the seat to the hip is recommended for first time users, but eventually you may find that another seat is more comfortable for you. For example, if you have really long legs, raising the chair a little higher than the hip height can reduce the tension on your knees.
  3. Tighten the chair by turning the lever to the right. Lock the seat in position by turning the lever on the frame clockwise or to the right. Continue turning the lever until the seat is held securely and securely. [3]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 3.jpg
  4. Release the lever under the seat by turning it to the left. Find the lever that adjusts the depth of the seat, which is located on the underside of it. Turn it counterclockwise to release it so you can easily move the chair forward or backward with your hands. [4]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 4.jpg
  5. Use the length of the arm to adjust the seat to the correct depth. Stand next to your bike and rest your elbow on the nose or front of the seat. Then keep your elbow on the seat and try to touch the handlebars with your fingertips. Move the seat so that the fingertips only touch the handlebars. [5]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 5.jpg
    • Using your elbow and fingertips is an easy way for beginners to find the correct seat depth, but you may find that a different position is more convenient for you.
  6. Turn the lever to the right to tighten the seat. Use a hand to hold the seat in position and turn the lever to the right to tighten it. Keep rotating the lever as far as you can to keep the seat firmly and securely in place. [6]

[ Edit ] Adjusting the height of the handlebars

  1. Release the lever on the front of the bike by turning it to the left. Find the lever that controls the height of the handlebars located at the front of the bike. Turn the lever counterclockwise to release the handlebars so that they can be moved up and down. [7]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 7.jpg
  2. Stand in front of the seat and place your forearms under the handlebars. Stand with the bicycle frame between your legs and handlebar in front of you. Tangle the handlebars with your forearms and bend your knees slightly. [8]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 8.jpg
    • Do not attempt to lift the handlebars from the front or side of the bike, otherwise you may strain your back. [19659009] Lift the handlebars and hold them in place. Push up through the forearms to raise the handlebars. Once you reach your desired height, hold them in place with 1 of your arms rocked under them. [9]
        Use a Peloton Bike Step 9.jpg
    • Tighten the lever by turning it to the right to secure the handlebars. With an arm rocking the handlebars to hold them in position, use your other hand to turn the adjustment lever to the right to tighten it. Continue turning the lever as far as you can to keep the handlebars in position. [10]

[ Edit ] Cut in and out of the bike

  1. Stand with 1 foot on each side of the bike frame and the pedals lie flat. Stand over the center of the bicycle frame with the pedals between the legs. Move the pedals so that they are aligned horizontally to the ground and the Peloton logo faces up. [11]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 11.jpg
    • The Peloton logo must be upwards to fit your shoes in the tracks of the pedals.
  2. Insert a shoe's dress into the grooves of a pedal with the toes facing down. Peloton bikes use "clip-free" pedals, so you need to wear bike shoes with a 3-bolt clamp that fits into them. Adjust the clamp on the bottom of 1 of your shoes with the grooves on the top of the pedals. Point your toes down as you push 1 of your shoes into the groove and start pushing forward on the pedal. [12]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 12.jpg
    • You do not need to use the Peloton shoes to squeeze into the bike. Every bike shoe that has a 3-bolt clamping bracket works well!
    • Keep your other foot firmly planted on the ground to provide balance.
  3. Press down on the pedal until you hear it click into place. Drive through the heel of the foot as you rotate the pedals. Keep pushing until you hear a "click" and your shoe snaps into place on the pedal. [13]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 13.jpg
  4. Slide your other foot into the other pedal and push forward. Move the pedals so they are flat and insert your other shoe's dress into the grooves on the top of the other pedal. Point your toes down and run through the heel as you rotate the pedals until you hear it snap into place. [14]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 14.jpg
  5. Kick your heel out and your toes inward to cut out the bike. When you're ready to squeeze out of the bike, take the pedals to a full stop. Then use a quick motion to kick the heel outward and run your toes toward the bike frame. The locking mechanism will disengage and you can remove the foot from the pedal. Repeat the movement on the other side to remove your other shoes. [15]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 15.jpg
    • Never try to squeeze while the pedals are still spinning or you can injure yourself.

[ Edit ] Riding the Peloton Bike

  1. Turn on your Peloton bike and enter your subscription information to activate it. Press the power button on the touch screen to turn on the bike and bring up the main menu. Follow the on-screen instructions to enter information such as your time zone and the email you used to pay for your subscription. Select a subscription to the account and press the button that says "Activate." [16]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 16.jpg
    • If you received your Peloton bike as a gift, enter the subscription activation key instead of your email.
    • Add additional riders who can also use the bike.
  2. Create a leaderboard that represents you. When you log in to your Peloton Bike homepage for the first time, you are prompted to create a screen name that will appear on the leaderboard and class list. Choose one that tells you a little about yourself and is relatively simple and easy to read so your instructor can give you a shout during a live class. [17]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 17.jpg
    • For example, if you are a mom who is at home at home, and you want to be more active, you can choose a screen name like "FitMomEmma." Or, if you are an early outfitter, you can choose something like "ZeroDarkThirtyRider."
    • Avoid vulgar or complicated leaderboards like "xX_JR1996M_xX_" which can be difficult to read.
    • Your toplist name can give a sense of who you are, helping you find riders with similar personalities and interests.
  3. Check out the Peloton 101 tutorial if you are new to the bike. After logging in to the home screen, look for the video series marked "Peloton 101" in the list of menu options. If you have just started riding your Peloton bike, spend some time going through the movies so you can become even more familiar with your bike. [18]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 18.jpg
    • You do not need to watch all the tutorial immediately if you are ready to go. You can always check it out later.
  4. Choose a tour on request to go whenever you want. Once logged in, look through the on-screen menu for rides of rides that you can choose. If you cannot make the time that a live class is set to start, or if you just want to choose your own tour on your own time, select the menu upon request. Browse the options and read the descriptions and find one that sounds appealing to you. [19]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 19.jpg
    • You can still save your stats and information during rides so you can visit them later and add your total riding results.
    • Look at the type of trip you find that suits you. For example, choose a "beginner" trip if you are new to the bike, or select a "Heart Rate Zone" trip for a heart-focused ride.
  5. Join a live ride to participate in real time. Check the times on the home screen for upcoming live tours and join the lobby about 10 minutes before the tour starts so you can participate in the warm-up and class discussion. You will be able to participate actively in real time and ask questions or get feedback from the instructor. [20]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 20.jpg
    • You will receive a call from the instructor for your first live tour!
  6. Select an encore tour to get your results on a live leaderboard. If you can't do it for a lifetime, you can choose one from the encore menu to participate in a pre-recorded ride with an active leaderboard. You will have real-time riders participating with you, and you can save your stats for the trip to contribute to your overall riding performance. [21]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 21.jpg
    • An encore ride is a good option if you have some instructors that you prefer, but you can't always do their life tours.
  7. Follow the instructions of your instructor during your trip. When a trip begins, follow the instructor's commands so you can get the most out of your ride while ensuring that you do it safely. When your instructor says to speed up, speed up! When they ask you to slow down, slow down. Each ride has a deliberate structure and pace for you to follow. [22]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 22.jpg
  8. Increase the resistance by turning the resistance knob clockwise. During the trip, your instructor asks you to either increase or decrease the resistance. To do this, place the resistance button on the frame under the handlebar. Turn to the right to increase the resistance and to the left to decrease the resistance. [23]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 23.jpg
    • As you become more experienced, you become better at finding the right amount of resistance for you.
  9. Press the resistance button straight down to apply the brakes. If you need to brake your bike or get it to a quick stop, you can apply the brakes by pressing the resistance button straight down. Keep holding the steering wheel down until the pedals have slowed down enough for you to stop them on your own. [24]

[ Edit ] Learn Lingo

  1. Use the Peloton pick program to try different coaching styles. Each Peloton trainer will have their own way of motivating you and have a vocabulary that is slightly different from other instructors. Explore the Peloton plicks option on the home screen to try out rides with different instructors so you can find one that you like. When you travel with them frequently, you will pick up on their unique signals and lingo. [25]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 25.jpg
    • You will also see when each instructor has scheduled life lessons so you can work to integrate them into your schedule.
  2. Place your hands at the widest part of the handlebar for 1st place. Take a comfortable sitting position on the bike seat, also known as the saddle. Lean forward with your back flat and straight, your shoulders relaxed and your chest open so your lungs expand. Place your hands at the widest part of the handlebars. [26]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 26.jpg
    • When an instructor tells you to go back to 1st place in a ride, gently return to this position.
    • If you need to reach out to the handlebars, try adjusting your chair so that it is closer and more comfortable for you.
  3. Get out of the seat and continue pedaling to be in 2nd position. Turn the resistance knob clockwise so that it requires more effort to pedal. Stand up out of the seat with your head up and chest open as you continue to pedal. Position the hips so that they are directly over the pedals and place your hands on the handlebars to support your upper body. [27]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 27.jpg
    • 2nd position is often used for low speed, standing jogs with high resistance.
  4. Stand with hips in front of pedals to use 3rd position. Increase the resistance by turning the steering wheel so you can get out of the seat. Get out of the seat with your head high and chest open and place your hips in front of the pedals as you continue to twist them. Place your hands on top of the handlebars for stability. [28]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 28.jpg
    • This position is often used for steep climbs or to accelerate to high speeds.
  5. Calculate your Power Zone so you can drive yourself on rides. Select an "FTP" test from the library on your monitor and complete it to find your specific zones so you can use them to access Power Zone rides. Knowing your specific zones will help you understand how hard you need to push yourself to stay in the zone and get the most out of your rides. [29]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 29.jpg
    • Focusing on Power Zone rides also gives you the opportunity to track your progress as you get better and better.
    • Look for instructors Denis Morton and Matt Wilpers in the library to find FTP test tours you can use to find your zones.
  6. Give high-fives to other riders by touching their profile picture. During a live or encore tour, you can congratulate another rider or simply say hi by sending them a "high-five". Find the profile picture of the person you want to raise five next to their leaderboard name on your home screen. Double-click the image with your finger to send them a high-five. [30]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 30.jpg
    • The other rider will be notified that you are sending them a high-five and they can send one back.
    • If someone breaks their own record or you both just survived a tough steep climb, a high-five is a great way to motivate each other!
  7. Earn a Century Shirt by completing 100 runs. When you finish your 100th ride, you are eligible for a Peloton Century Shirt that you can wear to show off your performance. Look for an email within a week or so after you finish your 100th ride, or contact the Peloton support team to inquire about it if you do not receive an email. The shirt itself is free, but you have to pay a shipping fee to send it to you. [31]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 32.jpg
    • Shipping usually costs about $ 7 or so.
    • If you try to buy a Century Shirt before earning it, it will cost $ 100,000!
  8. Join a tribe that appeals to you to find a community of riders. On the leaderboard below the riders you will see different groups of riders marked with a hash tag, for example #PelotonMoms or #PowerZonePack. These are "tribes" or groups of riders who have similar interests participating in rides together. Join a tribe that shares similar interests so you can ride with them and stay motivated. [32]
      Use a Peloton Bike Step 31.jpg
    • For example, there are tribes of doctors, lawyers, teachers, early morning rises and many more that you can choose to join.
    • Many tribes also have Facebook- groups that you can join so you can communicate with them outside the Peloton riders.
