And here is the Oxford's definition:

Can't believe this is an "unknown" word. Pah!

Sorry. I'd never heard of peloton before RM suggested its inclusion recently.
I do know pelota, the Basque /Spanish game -(I even had a go at that years ago when I was much younger and much, much fitter!)

I'm not really interested in bicycle races; that's probably why I don't know the word.

The Tour de France is rolling around again in a few weeks, so I'd better answer this suggestion. Whatever the reason peloton has been absent from our list in the past, it is certainly in plenty of dictionaries now, so I will add it as a rare word.

I sometimes think of the Chihuahua scoreboard in terms of a peloton, especially when a puzzle has only recently started. The chart under the scoreboard sometimes shows a sizable peloton, but with a few players having broken away to form a leading group. That's the group you'd like to be in. You certainly don't want to be in the autobus, the group straggling along behind the peloton.

I think that I'm mostly behind in the stragglers though I do very occasionally creep up to the peloton!  Maybe I need a new bike!!
