For those who would prefer to cycle in the comfort of their home comes the Peloton Bike. This was designed by Peloton in NYC and is available for preorder now.

The Peloton Bike is the first in its class offering both a premium bike alongside an 'experience.' The bike itself is designed with a belt drive system alongside a magnetic resistance flywheel, which will ensure a smooth and quiet ride. It is built using carbon steel, which allows for a high quality overall construction.

The interesting part is that it is also equipped with a 21.5 inch full HD console with WiFi. This is where the 'experience' begins: users can connect via WiFi and attend virtually broadcasted classes with actual cycling instructors. Peloton offers live classes each day and those are broadcasted live to your set -- they can also be streamed on demand. What is also interesting is the leaderboard that is available which keeps you competitive with other riders. Lastly, if you have a friend who owns a Peloton Bike, you have the opportunity to 'ride together' via video chat and microphone.
