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

Women's Road Racing Clinic Sunday April 17

I'm excited to be doing another Women's Racing Clinic with Greg Meeker for Half Acre Cycling! Registration is open now.

The clinic will be held in two parts. The first part will be a question and answer session about women's bike racing at Johnny Sprockets on Thursday, April 14. This will be a chance to sit down and ask all those questions that you've been wanting to know, a way to get to know other like minded women, and a really fun evening. This will be geared for beginners but everyone is welcome.

Beginners are also welcome at the second part of the clinic, on Sunday, April 17, but this will be also highly benenficial to ALL levels of cyclists. Greg Meeker is a cornering guru and was the first person who taught me how to corner years ago. He was a member of the US National Cycling team in 1974, 1975, and 1976. He has been coaching clubs and individual riders for over 30 years including seven ridiers who went on to become National Team Members. Greg went on to found Capital Velo Club, and all-women's team in Madison, WI. After a few years the team became free standing, but since then Greg has maintained a connection. He has provided his conerning clinic in Chicago several times over the years and I'm really excited to be working with him again, I can always use a brush up on my cornering! His technical experience combined with his down to earth communicating make for an awesome clinic.

Here are all the details--See you there!!!
