Peloton Bikes in College Towns

There are two reasons I wanted to write this blog post on Peloton bikes in college towns.

One, if you have a child in college or university, you may want to know about Peloton hotels when you visit them.

Two, you may be interested to know about colleges and universities that have Pelotons on campus.

This is good information to have if you go back for homecoming, parents weekend or just a little trip.

So, given the first point–looking for a Peloton hotel in a college town.

This information would have been helpful for my husband and me.

Why?

We’re both riders, and we recently took a short vacation to a college town.

Peloton hotels are really popular with riders.

And if the college town you are targeting only has one hotel with bikes, like ours did, you should book early.

This is especially true if you will be visiting during a football weekend.

We ended up having to stay in a non-Peloton hotel in that college town.

Peloton bikes in college towns

So, here is how I put this blog post together.

First and foremost, it is an alphabetical, state-by-state list of college towns with Peloton cycles somewhere in town.

This includes gyms and fitness centers with Pelotons as well as hotels with Peloton bikes.

In addition, I’ve rounded up campus fitness centers or workout rooms that have a Peloton.

Speaking of colleges and universities with Pelotons on campus, you need to keep the following in mind.

Some of these cycles are in campus fitness centers and are for student use.

However, others let parents buy a day pass.

These will help you keep your Peloton streak going while you are on campus.

However, not all do.

Peloton bike recall and hotel bikes

Peloton recently recalled original bikes because the seat post has broken a couple dozen times and injured riders.

Which Peloton bikes are affected

So, which bikes are affected?

  • Original Peloton model Bikes sold from January 2018 to May 2023 in the United States.
  • Peloton original Bike sold in the United States only.

It does not affect the following Peloton bikes:

  • Peloton bikes sold internationally
  • North America Bike+ models
  • International Peloton Bikes

I’m sorry to report that many hotels in the United States have unplugged their Peloton bikes, because they are most likely affected by this recall.

State by state list of college towns with Peloton bikes

Again, this is an alphabetical list, by state, of college towns with Peloton bikes. Some are on college campuses. Others are adjacent to or near the local college or university.

As of this writing I have 25 states included; this includes the District of Columbia.

The Graduate Hotel in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is close to the University of Arkansas. The hotel has multiple Peloton bikes in its Fitness Center.

According to the hotel website, “For collegiate sports lovers, Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Stadium [is] just minutes away.” The ASU campus, though, is just steps away from the hotel.

Marriott Hotel Brands

Looking for a Marriott hotel finder for a future stay when you can earn points as part of the Marriott Bonvoy rewards program?

Then make sure you familiarize yourself with all of the various Marriott brands. 

These brands many not all have Marriott in their names, but they are all part of the Marriott family:

Finally, many Marriott hotels have amenities worth noting.

This includes Peloton bikes (sometimes the Peloton Tread), Hydrow Rowers or Tonal/lululemon Studio smart gyms, plus electric vehicle charging.

Hilton Hotel Finder

In Fall 2022 Hilton hotels announced that they were putting Peloton bikes in every U.S. Hilton hotel by year’s end.

That’s great news for Peloton users.

However, in early 2023, my husband stayed at an Embassy Suites by Hilton hotel in Deerfield Beach, Florida, and there was not a Peloton in sight in the hotel gym.

So, caveat emptor.

Also, not all Hilton hotels have Hilton in the name, though many do.

Therefore, if you’re looking for a Hilton hotel, you should know all of the brands in the Hilton family.

You’ll find them in alphabetical order here in my Hilton Hotel Finder.

I’ve included a link directly to each Hilton brand so you can book a room directly with Hilton.

Finally, even if a Hilton hotel doesn’t have a Peloton bike, you may want to book a stay in a Five Feet to Fitness room. These guestrooms have workout centers in them, including 11 different pieces of cardio and strength equipment.
