How do I move my Peloton Reddit?

Answered by John Hunt

Moving a Peloton bike can be a bit tricky, but with some careful planning and preparation, it can be done smoothly and safely. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to move your Peloton bike:

1. Prepare the necessary tools and equipment: Before you start, gather the tools and equipment you’ll need for the move. This may include a blanket or moving pad, some bungee cords or straps, and a dolly or hand truck if available.

2. Remove the pedals (optional): Peloton recommends removing the pedals before moving the bike to prevent any damage. However, if you’re feeling adventurous like me, you can choose to keep them on. Just make sure they are positioned sideways so that no weight is resting on them.

3. Secure the bike on a blanket: Lay a blanket or moving pad on the floor of your car to protect both the bike and the car’s interior. Place the bike sideways on the blanket, making sure that the weight is evenly distributed and not resting on any pressure points.

4. Secure the bike with bungee cords or straps: To prevent the bike from shifting during transportation, use bungee cords or straps to secure it to the car. Wrap them around the frame of the bike and attach them to sturdy anchor points in your car. Make sure the bike is stable and won’t move around while you’re driving.

5. Test the stability: Before hitting the road, give the bike a gentle shake to ensure it’s securely fastened. If it feels loose, readjust the straps or cords until it’s stable.

6. Drive carefully: When driving with the bike in your car, be mindful of any bumps or turns that could potentially jostle the bike. Take it slow and avoid sudden movements to minimize any potential damage.

7. Unload the bike safely: Once you reach your destination, carefully remove the bike from the car, making sure not to scratch or damage any surfaces. If you used bungee cords or straps, disconnect them and remove them from the bike.

By following these steps, you should be able to move your Peloton bike safely and securely. However, keep in mind that Peloton does recommend removing the pedals for optimal protection during transportation. If you’re unsure or uncomfortable with the process, it’s always best to consult the Peloton support team or seek professional help.
