Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling
Piscitello Law has been an active supporter and mentor to Bicycle Coalition’s
Youth Cycling (BCYC) since its inception. CYC is a dynamic program which
helps young people create positive life change opportunities through cycling.
The program includes unique opportunities off the bike as well, including
tutoring and assistance with college applications.
Many CYC youths who complete the program go on to pursue college and other
professional endeavors. In June 2016, CYC athlete Allen Williams won the
Bill & Melinda Gates Millennium Scholarship thanks in part to his
college essay which credits the CYC program as a guiding force in his
academic career. Piscitello Law hosted a party to celebrate Allen’s
accomplishments and others within the CYC community (June 2016).
Piscitello also supports CYC by providing legal services and reviewing
procedures in the event of bicycle crashes. Joe also serves on the Advisory
Board to CYC and works with fellow Board members and Bike Coalition staff
to continually improve goals, outreach and programming. In February 2017,
Piscitello Law initiated and launched a Juniors Development Campaign to
raise funds for CYC. The firm has been a strong advocate of cycling safety
and provides bike lights to all members of CYC team.
