Pedaling With a Purpose

The Saturday class at BFF Bikes is now full!

Cycling coach and former Category 1 racer Kristen Meshberg conceived Pedaling with a Purpose (PWP) to train over Chicago’s winters. Kristen moved, but PWP lives on in Chicagoland. Annie will be leading the classes at BFF Bikes. Vanessa will be doing the same at George Garner Cyclery Libertyville!

Both Annie and Vanessa have earned their USA Cycling Coaching licenses. They will lead PWP using the periodized format and solid training principles that have always made PWP workouts so successful. And we mean successful! PWP has had many champions, from state to world level, train with us.

The concept is simple: it’s you and a fun group of cyclists being led through workouts with music and videos to keep you motivated. Everyone rides their own bike on their own trainer as we take the group through a structured winter training regimen.

Pedaling With a Purpose has been helping cyclists of all ability levels achieve their goals for 12 years. From world level athletes to beginning cyclists, PWP is the only place where ALL ability levels are able to get a great workout.
