Meet Megan Barto and Loren Barisch
We met Megan and Loren at the Philadelphia Bike Expo last year, where all cycling people, artisans and businesses meet up in our region. Megan Barto got into cycling because her father was an avid cyclists and she shared his love for the sport. Her father, who was also an attorney, passed away in 2010. Megan promotes bike events as a way to honor her father’s memory.
Loren Barisch has been a competitive cyclist for decades and is the race promoter for the Hummelstown Criterium. Happy to note that the men and women will enjoy the same levels of prize money in both the Race Avenue Crit and the Hummelstown Crit. YES! Also, both races have four women’s categories, including two women’s masters: 35 + and 50 +
Piscitello Law is a big advocate of getting more girls/young women involved in cycling and we support equal pay for male and female cyclists (at pro and amateur level). Both Megan and Loren are fantastic role models for the sport and for equal pay. We are thrilled to know them and introduce them to a wider audience. Check out their Crits below:
