One of my favorite things about Peloton is the community. I love to connect with others and one of the best ways to do that is by adding hashtags to your Peloton account for your interests, locations, groups, etc.
Hashtags are a newer feature that was introduced to help bring together members. In this post, we'll go over what the Peloton hashtags are, how they work, and how to find them and join.

What is a Peloton Hashtag?
A Peloton Hashtag - or Tags as Peloton refers to it - is a way to connect with other members that have similar interests. You can add up to 10 tags to your account and choose one that shows up during your workout. Hashtags are available for both digital and Bike/Tread members.
What Do the Hashtags on Peloton Mean?
Hashtags can really mean anything! Anyone can create a hashtag for an interest or group. Some hashtags can be the name of the group or location, some might be a saying, and some might be to celebrate a special event - like a birthday ride or milestone event.
How do Peloton Hashtags Work?
In a class, you can have 1 hashtag show up underneath your leaderboard name (you can change which one shows up as many times as you want). While you're in a class, you can click on the screen and see the top hashtags that are in the class. You can also filter on these hashtags and see which members belong to that hashtag as well!
You can also see what workouts are trending with your hashtags too so you can join a class that a lot of members are currently doing. Lately, instructors have also started doing callouts for popular hashtags too!

How to Create a Peloton Hashtag
The nice thing about hashtags is that if there isn't one you want to use, you can create your own! To create a hashtag, you'll go into your profile on the bike or the app, search for a hashtag and then start typing it in. If nothing comes up it'll give you the option to create that hashtag.
How to Find Hashtags
There are a few ways to find Peloton hashtags to join:
- In your profile, you can search for the hashtag you're looking to join by typing it into the search bar. If the hashtag doesn't exist, you can create your own!
- In the same section as search, you can also click on "Explore" and search through hashtags that are trending, featured, popular and the ones your friend use.

Popular Peloton Hashtags
Currently, the top 10 hashtags on Peloton are:
Blue vs White Hashtags
In a class, you'll notice that some hashtags show up as blue and others as white. Blue hashtags are hashtags that you also have linked to your profile (it doesn't have to be your active hashtag), and white hashtags are the groups you're not a member of.
Hashtags are a great (and fun) way to connect with other Peloton riders! You never know what you might find or learn - and there are some really cool communities on Peloton built by members!
