Hi all:
I ordered a Bike+ that should be here mid- January and am really looking forward to it! I had a question for anyone who can help- I ordered the shoes and locking pedals, and my wife would also like to use it...Can the pedals be used with normal tennis shoes as well or will she need to purchase biking shoes as well?

HI, they used to offer cages you can purchase that you slide regular shoes into with the original bike. Im sure they have the same type of thing for the +also.

You could feasibly ride the Bike+ with tennis shoes on the stock pedals, but it's not easy. I would get biking shoes, or you could always change the pedals out. But using clipless pedals are much more efficient and provide a much better workout since you're engaging muscles in the "pull"

There are pedals you can get that have which have cages on one side but I would recommend getting her biking shoes. It can be hard to get used to being clipped in on a regular bike but on a Peloton you won't fall over, etc. so it's pretty easy to get used to.

It is possible to use tennis shoes on the flat pedals but wouldn't recommend it as it can be dangerous if she pedals standing up and slips off she could get hurt.

Congrats on your bike!

Peloton has clip on toe cages that they can sell to you for around $30. I bought them recently for my bike plus. Use the chat feature on their site, select Bike, and then Accessories, and ask to purchase the toe cages. To use, you strap them to your tennis shoes/sneakers and then clip into the pedals like regular bike shoes.

Here’s the item info:
