People have asked me, “What makes LifeBike® Portable Pedals different from the other stationary pedal devices?” That’s a great question! Here’s the answer:
Top 10 Ways LifeBike® is Unique – Only LifeBike:
1. Patented as portable pedals. At 3.5 lbs., it folds flat & goes with you in its bag 2. Delivered to you fully assembled- simply unzip bag, unfold LifeBike® & pedal. 3. Made with lightweight aluminum. All other stationary pedals are made of heavy steel, which conducts heat and has burned their users. 4. Easy to stack or hang in its bag. It won’t take up space & you won’t trip on it. 5. Includes an optional Patented Smart Pedal™ with built-in sensor & tracking app
6. Pedals in both directions – (forward and backwards) 7. Easy to set up on a table/desk for hand pedaling. Also, convenient exercise for wheelchair bound, and stores under seat 8. Has interchangeable pedals (all others have a steel rod with irremovable pedals) 9. Convenient, easy & affordable exercise anywhere, even in small spaces like RVs, small apartments, tiny homes, and cubicles 10. LifeBike is NEAT Certified – Developed by Mayo Clinic, NEAT stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis
I invented LifeBike because I needed it myself. Thankfully, it’s transforming our customers’ lives, too! That’s because LifeBike® easily, affordably & conveniently burns 300 calories every 30-minutes, lightens your mood, (elevates endorphins), & increases productivity (boosts blood flow to your brain) anywhere you sit – at work, at home, and helps prevent blood clots on long flights!
PS – Thank you for your patience! The final prototype is done for the optional Smart Pedal add-on. We are completing the commercial version and now expect to deliver it to customers in the fall. Please feel free to call me for additional details.
LifeBike® is NEAT™ Certified. Developed by Mayo Clinic, NEAT™ stands for the Science of Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis.
Cabin pressure creates an environment of oxygen deprivation, which leads to blood clot risks. A blood clot shows up as a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or a Pulmonary Embolism within the next 48 hours following a long flight. That’s why our customers also LifeBike® in their hotel rooms or at home for 15 minutes a couple of times a day during the 48-hours following a long flight.
Blood will pool in your legs.
This is why I invented LifeBike® Portable Pedals (formally FlyteBike!) Check out the testimonials from LifeBikers who are burning calories, preventing jet lag and blood clots right from their seats on long flights! https://www.lifebike.co/testimonials
Thankfully, LifeBike® burns calories, increases blood flow & energizes us anywhere we sit – at our desks, at home AND on long flights! Our customers tell us they won’t fly without it! See LifeBike in action at https://www.lifebike.co/
We have exciting news! FlyteBike has a new name and a new home: LifeBike – Portable Pedals at https://www.LifeBike.co!
I originally invented FlyteBike™ because I couldn’t stand just sitting there in cabin pressure on long flights. 900,000 Americans get blood clots (DVTs) every year, 300,000 of which become fatal. A leading cause of DVTs is sitting sedentary for hours on long flights because the cabin pressure restricts the flow of oxygen on the plane. I wanted to help prevent blood clots and jet lag when I flew right from my seat as I flew.
Well, in addition to helping prevent jet lag and DVTs on long flights, our customers have also been burning calories, boosting their moods and energizing at work, at home, on road trips – everywhere! We are changing our name to LifeBike® Portable Pedals to include everybody!
Have you known someone with Deep Vein Thrombosis? There are approximately 900,000 Deep Vein Thrombosis episodes (blood clots) every year in the US, 300,000 of which become fatal. Long flights are a leading blood clot risk, due to sitting sedentary for hours at a time in cabin pressure, (oxygen deprivation).
How do you feel when you fly? In addition to DVT risks, long distance travelers report experiencing physical discomfort, cabin fever and jet lag from just sitting there in cabin pressure for hours.
Thankfully, LifeBikes now “fly through the air with the greatest of ease!” They are burning calories, while helping to prevent jet lag and blood clots – right from their seats!
Customers Share About LifeBiking on Long Flights. Here Are Two of Them:
“I recently took a long flight from Baltimore to Hawaii. I am a breast cancer survivor and suffer from localized Lymphedema in the armpit where my lymph nodes were removed. The compression shirt I used to wear was stifling and uncomfortable, not to mention hideous looking. I have been looking for an alternative and have found it in FlyteBike. It’s quiet and unobtrusive.
I suffered no swelling after a long flight and emerged from the plane ready for vacation. Thanks, FlyteBike. I won’t leave home without you!” — Lisa R, Baltimore, MD.
“As a nurse scientist specializing in cardiovascular risk prevention and reduction, I was concerned with the possibility of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) regarding a meeting I needed to attend in Singapore.
Having searched the internet looking for adequate preventive measures, I came upon an article on the LifeBike®. I immediately contacted Robin and she was kind enough to deliver one just prior to my embarking on the 20-hour flight. I had no issues going through Customs or security.
The LifeBike was light and easy to carry. Onboard it was not disruptive, and several other passengers asked to try it out. I pedaled almost every hour for at least 10 minutes and felt fine when I reached my destination. I don’t know what I would have done without it! No amount of walking around the cabin or stretching in the galley compared to the exercise I was able to achieve with the LifeBike in the comfort of my own seat.
Being a nurse, I am well aware of the effects of long flights on passengers of any age, let alone greater than 50! The FlyteBike not only provided an effective way to improve my circulation but it also allayed my fears of a blood clot. It is worth its weight in gold!” — Joann E., PhD, RN
To your health – at work, at home, even on long flights! Robin

Necessity is always the mother of my inventions…I am the only Broadway star turned serial inventor I know! 🙂
I starred in Broadway musicals for years as Robin Boudreau, (my maiden name), playing Linda Ronstadt’s sister in “The Pirates of Penzance” with Kevin Kline, co-starring with David Cassidy in “Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and singing “Memory” in “CATS.”
Now licensed by Audible (Amazon), my first invention was My Wake UP Call® Motivational Alarm Clock® Messages, My Daily Inspirations™ and My Good Night Messages™. Listeners choose from 150 hours of patented 5-minute messages with the Dalai Lama & other experts who inspire you to Wake UP to the life of your dreams, instead of in a state of alarm or with “violent programming.” (Audible, Apps, Mp3s) https://www.MyWakeUPCalls.net
If you are like me, you don’t want to have to choose between your fitness and your family, or between your wellness and your work. I couldn’t stand sitting sedentary at my desk all day or on long flights in “cabin pressure” (oxygen deprivation.)
Eighteen months after conceiving the idea for a lightweight, foldable, truly portable pedal device, FlyteBike™ Portable Pedals was born. At 3.5 pounds, FlyteBike™ comes fully assembled, folds flat, and goes anywhere with you in its bag, just like sneakers. I am grateful that FlyteBikers everywhere are easily and conveniently burning calories, boosting mood and increasing energy wherever they sit – at their desk, at home while watching a favorite show, even on long flights! Please check out the testimonials from happy FlyteBikers at https://www.FlyteBike.com/testimonials
Since I am known to say that FlyteBike boosts your metabolism whenever you sit, I accepted the challenge to “put my pedal to the metal” and sing out while FlyteBiking. Having starred in Broadway musicals for several years and written and produced a couple of original song albums, I agreed to see if I could belt out my FlyteBike song while FlyteBiking.
