What is Peloton Homecoming Weekend?

New Features Coming in 2021
During the keynote with John Foley on Day 1 a bunch of new and exciting features were announced! The big announcements include:
- Pause Button to On Demand Workouts - FINALLY! Peloton will be rolling out a pause button to tread and bike members this year.
- Strive Score Metric - This is a new metric that gives you a score during workouts (Tread, Bike and Strength) based on your heart rate. This kind of reminds me of the Orangetheory "Splat" points. For more info, check out Peloton's blog post here. Update: Here's my review of the new Strive Scores and how I'm using it.
- New Scenic Rides and Runs - Peloton is releasing new updated scenic rides and runs starting this weekend! Update: Here's my review of the new rides!

How to Get a Peloton Homecoming Box
If you've been on social media, you've been seeing Homecoming Boxes - boxes filled with balloons, mug, lights, and more - being sent out to random members. It hasn't been announced how to get one or who will receive one yet. Keep an eye on your mailbox to see if you're one of the lucky members to get one!
