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

Chicago PWP Participant John Cline is Mr. August in this year's TyK Caledar

The Thought You Knew Calendar features real Chicago cyclists and supports the Chicago Women's Health Center. TyK now features an 80's themed "gents" calendar of which John is Mr. August.

Here's an excerpt from the TyK website: "John crashed his first bike in an attempt to Evel Knieval off a jump and over a garbage can. That stunt may have landed him a trip to the hospital, but he was back on the bike for another attempt the next day. Now, as well as being a year round commuter and track racer, John throws himself just as hard into volunteering. He heads up Half Acre Cyclng's track team, works with Yojimbo's Track Cats and sits on the Northbrook Velodrome Track Committee. Somehow he also finds time to play in a couple of bands."

John has worked out with PWP for two winters now and has this to say about the program, "I have two podiums already and feel pretty good about my condition and it's only March. I can really seethis being kind of an institution for racers in Chicago."

Congrats John! I look forward to watching your results for the rest of the year!
