At this time of the year, you may be planning trips to go away. And, if you’re a Peloton user like I am, you may be wondering if you can continue to use your Peloton while traveling.
Well, the good news is that you can. In fact, the whole purpose of this article is to provide you with more than a half dozen ways you can use Peloton bikes while traveling. In addition, I’ll cover options for using the Peloton app, even when you’re at 30,000 feet or in the middle of the ocean on a cruise ship. I think you’ll find this information super useful.
Options for Peloton while traveling
So, how are some of the ways you can use Peloton or the bikes while you travel? Below is a numbered list of options. Then, throughout this blog post, I’ll offer details, tips and information to bring these suggestions to life.
- Hotels with Peloton bikes
- Vacation rentals with a Peloton
- Cruise ships with Peloton bikes
- Local gyms with Pelotons with day passes
- Peloton app on Delta Airlines
- Airport lounges with Peloton bikes
- Peloton store locations
Peloton bikes while traveling: hotels
Right now I’ve got nearly two dozen Peloton hotel-related blog posts written. My goal is to write posts for every geographic location that has a decent cluster of hotels with Peloton bikes in them.
Of course, I have my “main” Peloton hotel finder article, which provides overall advice on finding a place to stay with a Peloton bike in the hotel gym or even in a guest room. But as far as the cities, states and countries I’ve also covered, here is an alphabetical list.
List of Peloton hotel location blog posts
- New England
- New Jersey
- New York
- South Carolina
- United Kingdom
- Washington D.C.
- Washington State
Other Peloton hotel locations I’ve covered
In addition, I’ve covered hotels at airports with Peloton cycles. Also, I’ve written about college towns where you can find a hotel with a Peloton bike.
These Peloton hotel pieces continue to be works in progress. That means that as I come across new information, I’ll add it to that aforementioned main Peloton hotel finder article, or one of the destination-specific ones. Then, when I have enough hotels with Pelotons on property in a single location (primarily, a state), I’ll write a new, separate post.
Anyway, it’s clear that booking a stay in a hotel with a Peloton bike is extremely popular. It’s also one of the easiest ways to keep your Peloton streak going when you’re traveling. Finally, if I’ve missed a location where you yourself have stayed in a Peloton hotel while traveling, do let me know.
Vacation rentals with a Peloton bike
There’s no doubt that more Americans are vacationing by staying in home rentals. Nearly everyone I know will book a private home or apartment for a vacation, especially if they’re traveling with children.
So, it made perfect sense for me to explore a niche within the vacation rental industry–homes with Peloton bikes. That was the genesis of this blog post on how to find a vacation rental with a Peloton. In this article not only did I find homes with Peloton bikes but some had Peloton Treads, too.
So, where are these rental homes with Pelotons? Here is an alphabetical listing of the locations I’ve covered. Right now there are 30 plus in the United States and the Caribbean.
Locations of homes with Pelotons
- Jamaica, Montego Bay
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New York
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
- Turks and Caicos
- U.S. Virgin Islands
- Washington State
How I found vacation rentals with Pelotons
Can you find a Peloton in a vacation rental on your own
If you’re trying to do research on your own, good luck. Because none of the major vacation rental sites let you filter using the term Peloton. The best you’ll do is home gym or workout space. But then there’s no way to know if that home gym or workout space has the specific hardware you’re seeking.
However, I’m very good at what I do. And that’s sleuthing out information that others are seeking. Therefore, if you’re in the market for a vacation rental with a Peloton, I’ll point you towards that blog post on this topic.
Finally, if you have a home with a Peloton that you’ve considered renting out, here is a link to sign up with VRBO. Also, if you happen to have a home in Canada that you rent and it has a Peloton, please reach out to let me know. I’d love to add it to my articles.
Cruise Ships with Peloton Bicycles
The last time our family took a cruise, it was long before we owned our Peloton bike. However, times have changed. Now you can keep your Peloton streak alive even when you’re traveling and cruising.
As of right now it appears that only two cruise lines have Peloton bikes on board. And that would be Celebrity Cruises and one Royal Caribbean ship.
Celebrity Cruises with Pelotons
The Celebrity Edge has Pelotons in the fitness center. And Celebrity Cruises says that ships in the Millennium, Solstice and Edge classes also have the bikes on board. This includes the Celebrity Summit boat.
Also, I recently learned that the Celebrity Cruises Silhouette ship has six Peloton bikes on board. That’s compared with the three bikes on the Celebrity Apex ship.
A writer friend of mine wrote about her experience for the Cruise Critic website with using the Pelotons on a Celebrity ship. Here is what she had to say about which ships have them:
The line has six bikes per ship on its Edge- and Solstice-class ships, and four on its Millennium-class ships.
I wouldn’t be surprised if other popular cruise brands start to add Pelotons. Finally, if you find yourself on a ship without the cycles, you can always boot up the Peloton app and take classes that way.
Royal Caribbean Cruise with Pelotons
This is new as of 2022: some Royal Caribbean ships have added Peloton bikes to the fitness center.
Recently, I learned that the Royal Caribbean Wonder of the Seas, which is considered to be the largest cruise ship in the world, has four Peloton bikes on board.
In fact, a friend snapped this photo of the bikes (she’s on board right now) and shared with me.
If I learn of other Royal Caribbean vessels with Pelotons, I’ll be sure to add that information here.
Local gyms with Peloton bikes when you’re traveling
If you’re not staying in a hotel or vacation rental with a Peloton, you may be able to find a local gym that will give you a day pass. I’ve heard from readers who were traveling and found Peloton bikes at Anytime Fitness locations, a local YMCA and also university clubs.
College campuses with a Peloton
In addition, some colleges and universities have Pelotons on campus. I wrote about this topic in this blog post. It covers college towns with Peloton hotels.
However, within that post, I’ve also included some on-campus options, too. If you’re an alum or a parent of a current student, it’s possible you might be able to get a day pass to the campus recreation center where you’ll find the Peloton bikes.
Some of the colleges with Pelotons include:
- Emory University
- Harvard University
- Miami Dade College
- University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- University of Massachusetts-Amherst
- The University of North Carolina-Charlotte
- University of Utah
- University of Vermont
- The University of Virginia
If I’ve missed any colleges or universities with a Peloton on campus, please let me know. I’d love to include them in my post.
Peloton app on Delta Airlines
Recently, Peloton announced that you could enjoy its app while traveling on Delta Airlines. Specifically, Peloton content is loaded into the seat-back televisions on Delta Airlines planes.
That content is primarily yoga, meditation and stretching that you can do while seated. Peloton is calling it “Classes in the Clouds.”
According to a Facebook post announcing this partnership with Delta Airlines, here is what Peloton said:
“You can now access exclusive Peloton classes in-flight from your Delta seatback screen, including seated stretches and sleep meditations with the instructors you know and love.”
Peloton app travel collection
In addition to introducing these “Classes in the Clouds,” Peloton has put together a new travel collection of classes. Called Made for Travel it includes 40+ classes you can do anytime, anywhere, using the Peloton app.
The Made for Travel collection of Peloton classes includes:
- outdoor walks on the Peloton app
- core strength
- HIIT classes
And so much more.
Peloton bikes in airport lounges
One of the newest ways to ride a Peloton bike while traveling is to do so in an airport lounge. There are just a handful of Peloton-stocked areas in airports worldwide.
As I wrote about in this blog post about airport hotels with Peloton bikes, right now there is one airport lounge with Pelotons in the United States and one in the United Kingdom.
Capital One Peloton Airport Lounges
As I mentioned there is one U.S. airport lounge with Pelotons. Capital One, the credit card and financial services company, recently opened the Capital One Lounge at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport in Texas.
The lounge is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and located in Terminal D by Gate 22. Not only does it have Peloton bikes but also there are showers you can use for after your workout.
Two additional Capital One Lounges will arrive in major airports in 2022. They will be at Denver International Airport and at Washington Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C.
Virgin Atlantic’s Clubhouse at London’s Heathrow Airport
The other airport lounge with Pelotons is across the pond, at London’s Heathrow Airport. That lounge is the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse.
According to Virgin Atlantic Airways, the lounge is located in the Upper Class Wing at London Heathrow Terminal 3. It is open 6:30 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. or that day’s last departure.
My research tells me there are three Peloton bikes in the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse. The photo, below, confirms my research is correct.
Also, there are showers in the airport lounge. So, good to know if you’re traveling to/from London on Virgin Atlantic in the near future.
Ride a bike at a Peloton store
When you’re traveling to a location where there is also a Peloton store, you could get your ride on with one of the store bikes. Yes, riding in a showroom is still an option, although quite different from before.
I realize that you cannot ride milestone rides like you once could in these showrooms. For example, I rode my 900th cycling class at the Peloton showroom in Pittsburgh in February 2019, before the world shutdown.
I once wrote about how to get “free” Peloton classes in this blog post. However, I know people are still taking test rides on Peloton cycles and test runs on Peloton Treads.
That says to me that you could always book a “test” appointment at a Peloton store at your vacation destination or on a business trip. And then take your class that way. However, I realize this likely wouldn’t work on consecutive days in the same location.
Unfortunately, these days you can take a 10-minute class only when you book a walkthrough at a Peloton showroom. But, hey, at least you can keep your streak going.
Final thoughts on Peloton while traveling
In this blog post I’ve given you lots of options on how to find a Peloton bike while traveling. These options ranged from booking lodging at a home or hotel with a bike, or finding a local gym with one.
In addition, I’ve shared with you options at the airport. This includes taking classes while flying Delta Airlines.
If I’ve missed an option that you’ve used to keep your Peloton streak alive when you were traveling, please post a comment and let me know.
