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 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.
Graduate Hotels chain in college towns
There is a relatively new chain of hotels in college towns. They’re called Graduate Hotels. Right now there are 32 Graduate Hotel locations.
The newest one opening in 2022 is the Graduate Hotel Dallas. It is in Dallas, Texas, near SMU or Southern Methodist University. Previously, it was the Lumen Hotel.
Many Graduate Hotels have Peloton bikes in their gym. However, not all do. So, below, I’ve listed all of the Graduate Hotels locations.
You’ll noticed an asterisk next to certain Graduate hotel locations. These are the ones where I could not confirm that there was a Peloton bike on site. However, if I’m wrong about that, please get in touch, and I’ll update this post.
