    Peloton Group

    Have a Peloton?

    I am looking to expand my network of riders who are also skiers/riders.

    Shoot me a PM and I will share my username with you.

    I am on there. Thought about starting a thread on it once, but figured I would get a bunch of shit about it.

    I sort of have a username, but it may change. Just started on it, and I have been slacking lately.

    I fully expect shit to get thrown by starting this thread, so I started here in the nice padded walls.

    We love the Peloton. Since having the bike and membership since April 2nd, I have logged a lot of active days and increased my active energy to 571 kcal.

    I havenít started a group but that would be goal.

    There are are no groups for skiers or riders on all the open groups.

    I enjoy the peloton too. not much use lately now that it's been nicer out but we're on a 10 day stretch of bad weather so I'm sure I'll be checking back in
    I noted a BabyBear user one day while doing a ride, but that isn't mee

    Well, if we start a group, I'll have to actually use it more, so...

    I have loved that Twitter thread about the ads. I think the reality pictures would be more fun.

    I wish I could be riding outside, but traffic and stupid texting drivers make that not a great option. Mtn biking is my 1st choice, but living in FL limits that a bit. The great thing about the Peloton is the stats and interactivity. I get that it isn't for everyone, but it is literally the only way I am going to do more than I already do, fitness wise. My wife is killing it on the bike, and has quit all her other classes. She was doing Orange Theory, but had a back issue that demanded lower impact exercise. The Peloton was the perfect answer.

    If I take the pic at the correct angle, TGR will come down on me with a holy wrath, because it overlooks the pool area with the golf course in the background. Shit, I think I might actually be a fatter version of those commercials.

    and of course warthog knows I'm just messing with him
    But have you done the Grand Teton Scenic ride yet? it's fun bc it ends on a trail that we could never actually ride on legally.

    it's actually pretty addicting.
    We got one in my office and I was skeptical (bc we also already have a fully stocked gym even though only like 6 of us work there and only use occasionally)
    but it was much cooler than I anticipated. You get really sucked in and the time goes by fast.
    Hard to beat the hammerfest it delivers with virtually zero prep time.
    I don't say this about a lot but it truly exceeded my expectations

    I was thinking about this the other day as I have just saddled up on this device that my wife purchased for herself 3 years ago. Bionic rehab patient here ready to join the squad!

    Bobby Baker is that you?

    Agreed! I was super skeptical. Amazing how quickly time elapses and the amount of work you can get done. I had never been a fan of spin classes or any form of long slow distance training.

    Old folk can ride too. I am regularly getting beat by 60 year old geriatric Iron Men and women; motivation to keep riding.

    Yaíll Shoot me a PM if you want to start a group. I will start following you and we can make our tribe name.

    #Alpineteam, #skiersquad, or something of the like sounds good to me.

    Keep the jokes coming it all good, and seriously this has been an awesome investment for my health. Anyone on the fence or just looking at their wifeís should get their ass on it.
