The benefits of exercising at work are greater than just
- losing weight,
- improving your health,
- and extending your lifespan.
People who exercise before or during work are
- suffer less stress,
- and are more productive.
This is the gist of a study performed at the University of Bristol.
The DeskCycle makes it easy to get safe and effective exercise while working at your desk. It's the only bike that was specifically designed for this purpose.
Some of the features that distinguish the DeskCycle from the rest are shown below.
Lowest Pedal Height
At only 10 inches, the DeskCycle has the lowest pedal height of all pedal exercisers.
Smooth and Quiet
The touch-free magnetic resistance system of the DeskCycle is both smooth and quiet. Most bikes have friction resistance that can be noisy and have jerky pedal motion that is distracting and unhealthy for your joints.
Smooth pedal motion is healthy for your joints, and lets you focus your attention on your work.
Quiet pedal motion lets your coworkers focus on their work.
Burn More Calories
The lowest resistance setting is easy. The maximum resistance of the DeskCycle is between 2 and 10 times the maximum resistance of the other pedal exercisers, not including the MagneTrainer.
Highest Quality / Longest lasting
The DeskCycle is built to last for years of maintenance-free use.
The DeskCycle has the same patented magnetic resistance system and high quality, heavy-duty components as the MagneTrainer.
Bidirectional Pedal Motion
Pedal the bike forwards or backwards. Pedaling backwards works opposite muscle groups.
Improve your Health, Energy-Level and Productivity
OPTIONAL ACCESSORY Monitor your DeskCycle workouts more easily with this handy display stand and 10-foot extension cord. Just remove your DeskCycle’s LCD display, connect it to the main unit with the cord, and set it on the stand on your desk. Includes a sturdy steel stand and a 10-foot extension cable.
Raise your Energy Expenditure
- Sitting on an exercise ball while working, raises your energy expenditure by 6% over sitting at your chair.
- Standing at your desk raises your energy expenditure by 30%.
- Pedaling the DeskCycle at only 1 revolution per second, at resistance level 3, raises your energy expediture by 100%.
- The DeskCycle has 8 resistance levels.
I found the DeskCycle to be an excellent solution for both for getting a cycling workout and decreasing your sedentary time. Turn your sitting time into active time. The manufacturer provided a sample for me to use to review, which I purchased after giving it a try-out. It fits perfectly into my workstyle and takes up no space in my office.

I had such high expectations for my DeskCycle and they have been far surpassed! I love my new “bike”! It is perfect for work, gives a fantastic resistance, and the desk display is wonderful. I could not be happier. Thank you so much for creating a wonderful option for people who are confined to a desk all day.T. Terry
I absolutely love the desk cycle!!! I also run, but have difficulty working it in, except on weekends. It's great being able to cycle while sitting at my desk, since I'm at my desk up to eight hours a day anyway. Again, I love it and would recommend it to anyone.D. Ahlstrom
Looked at so many of these before purchasing this more expensive model. So glad I did! Quality product. Solid steel construction. Quiet and very smooth operation. Doesn't move while using it very much. Resistance is smooth and more than enough when turned up all the way. Well worth the price, would absolutely buy again.K. Kropp (Amazon Reviewer)
