Peloton’s “You Can Ride” Program Description

The program description reads: “Clip in and join the family! Begin your Peloton journey with this 3-week program that gives you a taste of our different classes and instructors. From clipping in to understanding your touchscreen, you’ll be a pro in no time!”

The You Can Ride program contains nine classes and calls for three active days per week for three weeks. Classes are either 20 or 30 minutes in length. The instructors for the You Can Ride program are:

  • Leanne Hainsby
  • Alex Toussaint
  • Robin Arzón
  • Hannah Frankson
  • Camila Ramón
  • Sam Yo
  • Cody Rigsby
  • Emma Lovewell
  • Kendall Toole

The program contains brand new classes, including some with class titles that we’ve not yet seen in cycling, such as a 20 min. Advanced Beginner: HIIT Ride, a 20 min. Beginner Rock Ride, and a 20 min. Beginner Low Impact Ride.

Because You Can Ride is a program, the classes are not available in the general class list. Members must “start the program” and follow the recommended class schedule in order to access the content. However, using our lists, you can jump around the program as you wish and unlock the classes.
