First, find a suitable spot for your bike. Choose a level, dry space with enough room for movement on and off the bike.

Attach the stabilizing feet to the front and back. This ensures the bike won’t wobble during rides.

Next, connect the touchscreen console. Slide it onto the mount, ensuring it clicks into place securely.

Plug in the power cord to the back of the bike, then connect it to a wall outlet.

Lastly, adjust the seat and handlebars. Set the seat height to hip level and handlebars at a comfortable reach. Your knees should have a slight bend when pedaling.

Always double-check that all screws and connections are tight before riding.

How to Power On Your Bike

Locate the power button at the rear of the touchscreen. It’s typically on the right side. Press and hold it for a few seconds until the screen lights up. If nothing happens, double-check that the bike is plugged into a working outlet.

For bikes with the original screen, use the smaller button found on the top edge. Remember to make sure the power cord is securely connected both to the bike and the wall socket.

If your screen remains off, consider resetting it by unplugging and then replugging the cord. Wait a few moments before pressing the power button again.

Following these steps should bring your Peloton to life, ready for your next workout.

How to Connect Your Bike to Wi-Fi

First, ensure your bike is plugged in and powered on. Find the touchscreen and tap the home icon at the bottom center of the screen. From there, tap the Wi-Fi icon on the top right corner.

Choose the network you want to connect to from the list of available networks. Enter your Wi-Fi password precisely. Remember that passwords are case-sensitive, so double-check your typing.

Once connected, a green checkmark will appear next to your network. You are now online and ready to start your workout. If issues arise, try restarting your router or checking if other devices connect to the same network. Keep your Wi-Fi router close for the best signal strength.

If problems persist, contact Peloton support for additional help.

How to Activate Your Peloton Account

Launch your Peloton by tapping the touchscreen. Follow the on-screen instructions to create or log into your account. You’ll need your email and password. New users should tap “Get Started” to set up their profile.

Next, enter your membership details. If you’ve got a subscription already, input those credentials. If not, choose a plan that fits your needs.

Personalize your profile. Add a profile picture, set fitness goals, and connect with friends. These options make your workout experience more engaging.

Finally, you may want to explore tutorial videos available. These will help you get the most out of your new Peloton.

You’re now ready to ride.
