The Best Home Exercise Bikes for Fun Workouts Anytime
By Heather Mayer Irvine
Although we’re no longer confined to our home gyms, there’s something nice about having our workout space within arm’s reach. In fact, many exercisers still prefer at-home workouts, according to a report from the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association, an industry trade group. Indoor cycling can be a particularly effective workout, whether you’re just trying to stay active or seeking to improve power and performance.
Over the course of several months, we spoke with experts who shared their top factors to consider when choosing an exercise bike, and then we got riding. Whether you want the “best of the best” bike with every bell and whistle or a more streamlined version to just move your legs, there is an option for everyone. We found the Peloton Bike is the best exercise bike for most people, while the Schwinn IC4 (and the identical Bowflex C6) is a more bare-bones option for those who want to use another app, or no app at all.
