Uncle Sam appears to be all in on Peloton — we have discovered the feds have spent large on gear … making you marvel if Joe Biden‘s love of the train bike may be at play.
In line with federal procurement docs, obtained by TMZ, the federal government has spent upwards of $220,000 on Peloton bikes and different train gear courting again to the summer time of 2020 … earlier than President Biden took workplace.
In July 2020, the Air Pressure positioned a big order for “Peloton Bicycles/Health Tools” within the quantity of $33,366.
Unclear what number of bikes have been delivered particularly, however contemplating that the bikes are greater than $1,000 a pop, ya gotta determine it was a bunch of them. Later in September, the Agricultural Analysis Service positioned a Peloton bike order for an additional $26k price of the bikes.
Then, 2021 rolled round — when Biden took workplace — and it looks as if the feds went Peloton loopy … ordering north of $96,000 price of Peloton-related health gear, however together with a bunch of stuff from Precor Inc. — an enormous title in treadmills and train gear that was acquired by Peloton again in December 2020.
A rep for the Air Pressure tells us they've health facilities on all of their bases, that embrace Pelotons and different exercise gear. They mentioned the facilities are “essential to the readiness of our airmen.”
Within the docs, the FBI mentioned their Peloton gear was for “coaching aids.”
Among the many companies who have been making an attempt to get their sweat on … the Air Pressure (once more), the Military and the FBI.
2022 was fairly pleasant to Peloton as properly from inside D.C. — it appears like the federal government spend upwards of $64k on extra Precor stuff … this time between the Military and Immigration.
It is no secret JB is a fan of Peloton — he is copped to understanding on one frequently … but it surely turned a flashpoint early in his administration as there have been cybersecurity considerations from the built-in mics and cams. Officers had urged he depart it in Delaware post-November 2020.
