Author Jennifer Bardsley (who also publishes books under the pseudonym Louise Cypress) has discovered the world of Peloton. Writing for the Everett Herald she extolls the virtues of both the bike and the community.
Becoming a Peloton member is like joining a cult. There are Facebook groups to join galore, like Peloton Pacific Northwest, which has more than 4,000 members. I’m also part of the Official Peloton Mom Group and #BooCrew, the group devoted to Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby. Each group has their own hashtag, which becomes important on what they call the leaderboard.
While she’s only owned the bike for two months she’s already managed to fit in 152 workouts and over 60 rides. She goes on to say:
I haven’t lost any weight, but I’ve improved my cardiovascular endurance. Most importantly, I’ve managed my stress. It turns out that the path to calm can be a bike ride to nowhere, with a bunch of total strangers cheering you on.
