Lanebreak has been in Beta for a while but was just released to the masses for all those with a Peloton Bike or Bike+. The game is simply: Use the resistance nob to change lanes – Left is easier and right is harder. You change lanes to hit a variety of points in different ways until you end your game….ride at the top of the Leaderboard (Just like an arcade game!)
You start by selecting your Game, ranging from a quick warmup to a 30-minute sweat drenched ride. You get to choose an overall level of difficulty, then jump in!
Along the way you hit “Beat” runs (as shown above at the top of the article) or “Streams” (where you maintain a set cadence) or “Breakers” (where you do a quick spin-up to hit at least 100% or go for bonus 200%!)
At times you will be presented with two lanes to choose from…an easier or a harder option. Take the hard one to rack up the points!
I’ve been using a Bike (then Bike+) for years now and am a huge fan of Peloton. All-in-all, Peloton has a nice winner in this added software option of Lanebreak. I took my first “game” this morning thinking it would do an “easy” 20-minute session. Well, that competitive spirit was unleashed as I aimed for a high score. Overall, I think this is a great addition to mix-up the classes and still get a solid workout! More info can be found on the Peloton Blog.
