Cycling classes on non Peloton bikes when traveling

Hi everyone, just joined. I travel quite a bit with work (used to, now starting up again) and was wondering if anyone had experience taking classes on their phones/tablets using a non-Peloton bike when away from home. I'm going to try this evening on a LifeFitness (?) bike at the hotel I'm staying at. Are the resistance settings across manufacturers relatively comparable the way treadmills are?

Thanks in advance if anyone has experience w this.

Hi Greg!

I haven't found that they're consistent at all so it can be done but you need to estimate settings on your own which is far from perfect. As you mentioned, treadmills are much more consistent so I have usually ended up doing Peloton digital treadmill workouts and lifting weights while traveling or if I do bike workouts I do the one on the non-Peloton bike and listen to music.
Safe travels!
Cycling is a perfect activity to train your muscles. With cycling, you can work your lower body and core. Your glutes, hamstrings, shins, and glutes will instantly be activated and active. As you repeatedly push down on the pedals, you activate your quads. Therefore, bulging calf muscles are very noticeable in cyclists. When you're at 12 o'clock and 5 o'clock, most of your major muscles are activated, but between 6 and 12 o'clock, you'll find some knee crunches that benefit the lower body muscles your body.
