What You'll Get
If the dune buggy and the sewing wheel hadn't enjoyed that fateful tryst so many years ago, the bicycle might never have been born. Honor pedal-powered progress by holding tight to the handlebars of today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-month membership (a $60 value) to Peloton Cycling Center on Merchandise Drive. You will be allowed four hours of cycling per week during your month of membership.
Devoted to fostering Fort Wayne's cycling community, Peloton Cycling Center equips its indoor arena for year-round training with stands for stand-still biking and CompuTrainer technology, which helps simulate the great outdoors while increasing your cycling speed by 2 to 4 mph and your power by 20% to 30%. During their month of access, serious cyclists will get to training-montage for their next competitive velocipede endeavor in an ultrafuturistic environment safe from the vagaries of time and the bitter chill of Midwestern winters. Groups of six to 12 people can ride the same "course" together simultaneously, while individual speeds, heart rates, distances, calories burned, and more are fed back to riders on display screens. Interactive course videos simulate Ironman courses for an immersive experience that only lacks bear attacks and alien abductions for wilderness realism, while additional 3-D software goes the extra mile to pump up the reality fog.
By spicing up the repetitive tedium of stationary bicycling with immersive simulators and the company of equally passionate pedalers, Peloton Cycling Center keeps bikers from feeling like they're trapped in a gerbil wheel—which in turn makes them less likely to gnaw on toilet-paper tubes or eat their own young. Keep the coming winter snow from erasing your summer gains with today's Groupon.
