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

Pedaling With a Purpose info is HERE!

I am excited to announce the details for the 2011-2012 PWP session!

The program starts the weekend of December 3/4 and meets every week until March 24/25, with no classes being held the weekend of Christmas and New Years. The Oakbrook program is returning to our usual location at Oakbrook Racquet and Fitness Club. We meet on Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings. The brochure can be found here.

The Chicago location has changed. I'm thrilled to be partnering with Mox Multisport at 738 W. Randolph. We are going to be using the back half of the store entirely for PWP. They do have a limited number of trainers for us to use; if you'd like to use one be sure to register fast as they will be allotted to the first people who sign up. They are also welcoming us to store our bikes and trainers and will be providing discounts on merchandise and labor for the duration of the class. Another exciting addition is the Engine Building 101 class with Newt Cole. An 8 week, 1 hour class immediately following Saturday's PWP ride designed to create strength and power while improving mobility and flexibility with body weight movements and resistance bands.

e-mail me for a copy of the brochure.

I am really excited about my training this winter and hope you are too. I look forward to riding with you while we work toward achieving our goals!


  1. If we have our own trainers, can we bring them or will PWP be limited to the number of trainers lent by MOX? --- Sue

  2. Yes absolutely bring your own trainer! We should have plenty of room. Mox just happens to have some trainers sitting around and are letting us use them as a courtesy.

  3. Hi Kristin, I'd love a copy of the brochure. Can you mail one to largejustin@email.com. Thanks

  4. Justin,

    I tried to email you but it got sent back. Do you want to just email me and I'll reply to that? kmeshberg@comcast.net
