Every now and then a word becomes a brand name, as in the case of everyone's favourite pandemic bike, Peloton. I only discovered that Peloton was a real word during the recent Tour de France crash.
Peloton comes to us from the French word for platoon. Nowadays it refers to a main pack of riders in a bicycle race. It might intrigue you to know that pelotons are not just strategic--riding in a pack creates a reduction in drag and allows cyclists to save energy. Huh!
