The canes look thicker than what I think of as peloton. This looks more like a scramble to me. It could be from many places. It doesn't strike me as being Muranese type glass.

Might also be worth searching the board for peloton - there are a fair number of earlier topics with photos for comparison.

Peloton glass is (usually??) made with thin strips of single-coloured glass applied to the outer surface, not with lengths of cane that show a colour coating over a white (opal) inner core. Also, Peloton glass is mostly of a more delicate appearance than this item.

This could be seen as a modern version of the old Peloton ware, but I tend to agree with Anita that "scramble" would be a better description.
