With gyms continuing to remain closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have rediscovered home workouts as a way to maintain a healthy exercise routine. But after a few months getting creative with a yoga mat and weights, some people may be considering making a bigger splurge — on an at-home exercise bike.
Fitness startup (and one-time questionable viral internet sensation) Peloton largely dominates the home spin bike scene, but the basic package starts at $2,245, which is a lot of money to spend. Factor in the cost of additional monthly memberships for exclusive on-demand workouts, and, well, it adds up. With that in mind, we've rounded up a bunch of affordable alternatives to consider. While still a not-insignificant investment at $400 and up, the nine choice picks here are perfect for your next sweat-dripping, socially-distanced spin sesh.
