This blog documents the racing, training, & riding experiences of the participants of PWP

Pedaling with a Purpose

My name is Kristen Meshberg and I am a former category 1 bike racer. I competed nationally in both road and track. I am a USA Cycling Coach, and help individuals develop plans to achieve their goals. To survive the Chicago winter, I developed an indoor workout program called "Pedaling with a Purpose."

I now have various locations across the United States. To find out more about Pedaling with a Purpose or Coaching, email Kristen at: kmesh.pwp@gmail.com

I'm excited to announce I will be riding for Athletes By Design for 2011.

ABD has a rich history of supporting women, and I'm proud to be part of it. There's possibility of a few more, but so far here's our team:

Jessica Prinner
Stacy Appelwick
Sarah Demerly
Kristen Meshberg

Looking forward to another great year of racing!
