Why did I first write this blog post about how to keep a Peloton streak going? Well, like many of my blog posts involving the Peloton bike, I had a personal reason for delving into this topic. And my reason was this: during the summer of 2021, I tripped and fell in my garage. I landed on my right wrist. Not surprisingly, I broke my wrist.
At that time, I was in a cast for the rest of the summer as my wrist healed. Then, in 2022, I had another accident. Well, it wasn’t an accident but somehow I hurt my back.

I woke up one day in November and I couldn’t walk. After months in physical therapy and an MRI, I was diagnosed with spondylolisthesis. With that diagnosis, I had to change up how I work out. Nonetheless, I’ve managed to keep my Peloton streak alive for more than five years.
How Peloton daily streaks work
If you look at achievements in your Peloton profile, you can look at badges that tell you the various streaks that you’ve had going. In my blog post about Peloton Milestones, I outline the different daily streaks that you can achieve. They are:
Come check out my new PeloZone Blog!
Because of the popularity of my Peloton content and my Peloton expertise–I’ve been a Peloton user since 2016–I’ve decided to start a new blog devoted entirely to Peloton content.
But, before you head over there, head to Amazon, where, through 12/6/23, Peloton accessories are on sale by as much as 50%.
- 3 Day streak
- 5 day streak
- 7 Day streak
- 10 day street
- 20 day streak
- 30 day streak
- 45 day streak
- 60 day streak
The limit to Peloton daily streaks
Sadly, Peloton doesn’t give you badges for a streak going beyond 60 days. It really feels like they should.
Recently, in one of the many Peloton Facebook groups that I am in, somebody shared that she made her own 365 day Peloton badge. She was so proud of her 365 day streak that she wanted some way to celebrate it since Peloton didn’t.
These badges are just like the ones you get when you take your first classes in different genres. My blog post on Peloton for beginners covers these badges in depth.
There is no 365 day Peloton streak badge
Of course, I tried to explain to her that there was a 52-week badge which equals 1 year. However she was dead set on having a badge that showed 365 days.
Who knows? Maybe in the future Peloton will take a page from her and extend the streak badges beyond just 60 days.
Keeping a Peloton weekly streak going
As far as weekly streaks go, as I mentioned I’ve got a five-plus-year streak going. However, Peloton doesn’t measure things in years for the most part. They do it in weeks. So, I’m at 282 weeks as I update this article.
However, the longest weekly streaks you can get are a 175 week streak and then a 208 week streak. That latter one is the equivalent of 4 years. Clearly, I’m well past that point.
What are the Peloton weekly streaks
But, let’s take a step back here. Let me outline the list of the weekly streaks that you can get. They are:
- 3 week streak
- 5 week streak
- 10 week streak
- 20 week streak
- 30 week streak
- 40 week streak
- 1 year or 52-week streak
- 60 week streak
- 70 week streak
- 80 week streak
- 90 week streak
- 2-year or 104 week streak
- 125 week streak
- 3-year or 156 week streak
- 175 week streak
- 4-year or 208 week streak
It’s interesting. You can get a badge for a 7-Day streak, but there is no badge for a one-week streak. I guess because 7 days is a week and that would be redundant. I’m still not clear on the logic behind the badges that Peloton gives or doesn’t give for daily and weekly streaks.
The Peloton annual
Peloton launched The Annual challenge in 2020. At that time, it challenged members to exercise for 5,000 minutes a year. So many people quickly surpassed 5,000 minutes in 2020, I’m guessing, with everyone at home.
Then in 2021, they upped it to 10,000. Since 2022, it’s been 20,000 minutes a year. While I’ve strived to make that number, I haven’t hit it these past few years.
In 2022, I made it to 18,000 minutes. So close. In 2023, I’ll be lucky to hit 10,000 minutes. It’s one thing to find a way to keep a streak alive with just a broken wrist. At least I could still walk. However, not being able to walk for a large part of 2023 has really been a problem. Sure, I could have done meditations to make my minutes but, honestly, my mind wasn’t so much on making minutes. It was getting better.
Maintaining a Peloton streak when you’re off the bike
So, as I mentioned in the introduction, my original inspiration for writing this blog post is a selfish one. I had a broken wrist. That’s my casted arm, below.
I realized that there are other times when you might want to keep a Peloton streak going and it has nothing to do with having hurt yourself. For example, maybe you’re going away. Even so, you want to find a way to keep your Peloton streak going while you’re on vacation. I have a couple of ideas for this one
How to keep a Peloton streak while on vacation
First, before you book your vacation, check out my blog post on Peloton hotels. That is, I’ve collected a comprehensive list of hotels and resorts that have Peloton bikes on property. If you happen to be going on vacation and staying at one of these places, you’ll have no problem keeping your streak going.
Second, if your vacation involves renting a private home, I can help there too. Please read my blog post on vacation rentals with a Peloton in them.
I have found hundreds of private homes, condos and apartments in the United States and the Caribbean that have a Peloton bike in them. Usually renting them means that you get access to the bike, too. So like a Peloton hotel, if you are staying in a home with a Peloton, you should have no problem keeping your streak going
Use non Peloton equipment to workout
Here’s another way to keep your Peloton streak going while you’re on vacation. Even if you don’t have access to a Peloton, use the Peloton app to exercise.
There is so much great fitness and wellness content on the app. Given that, you should have no problem earning your blue dot every day that you are on vacation.
That being said, vacations are meant for taking time off. So if you are determined to get a blue dot, just do a Peloton meditation. There are short meditations that you can listen to while you sit quietly, and you will still earn your blue dot.
Final thoughts on keeping a Peloton streak going
In the end, if you come up with creative ways to keep your own Peloton streak going, please post a comment and let me know. I’d love to hear your ideas.
By the way, with my back injury, I’ve found that the Socket Seat cushion has helped me during recovery. It keeps my pelvis in a neutral position while sitting. My orthopedist recommended I get one, and I’m so glad she did.
