Cycling is one of the most well-rounded forms of cardio out there. Your spin class or outdoor bike ride tasks your glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves (and, hey, that core is pretty involved, too). If you want to get cycle-strong while you're still on the clock, under desk bikes are a solid multitasking option.

The under the desk bike community is a passionate one. You wouldn't know it by their flawless Zoom meeting appearances, but they're going to work while they work. Nine-to-five cyclers are clocking miles and miles a day on their stationary bikes, but it also pays to learn from their mistakes before submitting your order.

First, make sure your office setup is ready for a bike. Is your desk high enough to pedal your legs in their full range of motion? Do you have too many computer cords to fit a bike below your desk? And if you're good to go on space, what kind of model do you want? Something with a built-in seat and/or desk? Or a bike setup that consists of only the pedals?

Make sure you have a hard convo with yourself before scrolling down. Then, you're ready to choose from 10 of the best under desk bikes on the market. Below, we've done the research so you can just coast... through your email inbox and to-do list, that is.

Get pedaling with the best under desk bikes

flexispot desk bike
FlexiSpot, Desk Bike V6 Pro — $799.99

Quite possibly the “fanciest” on our list, this desk bike is like the BMW sports SUV of all desk bikes—so we’re featuring it for good reason. Reason number one is that it’s a 2-in-1 desk bike and chair, so if you’re on the hunt for an ergonomic chair as well, this is an economic option. Back health and posture go hand-in-hand with overall fitness goals, since better back alignment helps with overall core strength—so as you cycle away while you’re working, you’re also working on your core strength. The chair itself is fully adjustable, and the cushioning is plentiful, even for those who prefer a very pillow-y seat while they work. Another cool feature? It has an LCD display, so you can track performance. Bonus: The lockable wheels, so that you’re not cycling away into the next room.

Just FYI: Reviewers say it takes about 30 minutes to assemble everything.

Just FYI: Some reviewers warn that the tracking mechanism on the DeskCycle isn’t quite up to snuff, so if you want to keep track of the mileage you’re racking up throughout the day, this bike may not be for you.

It also features a multifunctional LCD display with large numbers so you can easily see your time, distance, count, total counts, and calories burned when glancing down at work. And, at 3.7 x 15.7 x 11.6 inches, it’s compact enough to stow away when not in use.

The HIT NOTION UPright Training X-Bike comes in three different colors and weighs just over 41 pounds, so it’s super durable, too. And, while it’s not the most accessible, the bike also features a display screen so you can keep track of your progress and while staying productive at work.
