We embarked on this journey armed with ChatGPT, a powerful language model, to guide us in finding the necessary Python libraries and implementing a conversion script. With the help of the pylotoncycle library and some custom code, we developed a solution that automates the conversion of Peloton workouts to iCalendar format.

But we didn’t stop there. We recognized the importance of contributing back to the community, so we added unit tests and submitted a pull request to the pylotoncycle library. Our contribution not only enhanced the library but also paved the way for other developers to leverage our solution for their own Peloton integration needs.

In this article, we’ll explain the challenges we faced, the steps we took to overcome them, and the benefits of integrating Peloton workouts with calendars.
