The Peloton Bike- An Honest Review

Funny story-Joey surprised me with a Peloton bike in December… about 2 days before that awful commercial went viral. You know- the one where the husband got his thin wife a Peloton for Christmas and they showcased her “transformation” over the year… all while she
