2013 Bike To Work Week Video Contest, First Winner

We are excited to announce the first of two winners for the Bike To Work Week "Video Contest!!"

Our first winner, or winners rather, is a group of friends from San Diego California.  Leylla Badeanlou and her friends Khalisa Bolling and Brian Kranson have produced a beautiful video advocating for bike commuting as well as (separate from this video) several beautiful videos of their adventures in hopes to inspire others to seek adventure themselves.   All three are avid cyclists and supporters of biking as a transportation way of life.

Their video is a great promotion of biking as a transportation lifestyle and definitely has the touch of a professional hand or two.  We really enjoyed the short film and the simple message behind it.  It is not hard to see why they believe biking to work is a more joyful way to start of your day.

For dedication to cycling as a transportation lifestyle and for bringing professional talents into their advocacy work, we are happy to cover Leylla, Kahlisa, and Brian as they cycle around town an across the states with their stylish and bike-attachable Po Campo hand bag.  Congratulations, and we hope your continue to share your passion and love for adventuring and cycling for many years to come.

Our first winner, or winners rather, is a group of friends from San Diego California, Leylla Badeanlou Khalisa Bolling, and Brian Kranson.  These guys are all working professionals who advocate for biking and healthy living in various ways. 

Leylla, a recent recipient of her Masters in Molecular Biology, is creatively minded and started her own photography business, Imagery with Impact, which has now expanded to include videography. She started with creating short films of trips with friends and realized how much she enjoyed the creativity involved with filmmaking.  Fortunately, her interest in visual media and her work advocating for safe bike routes in her community have intersected.  She is currently working on projects for the New York Times and Facebook.  You can check her work and business out at http://imagerywithimpact.com/.  

Khalisa works as a Health Educator for the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine at the University of California, San Diego.  She is an avid cyclist both for commuting and recreation.  Khalisa has been working to create a more bike-friendly community by working with and serving on the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition’s Advocacy Committee, working with BikeSD, and regularly attending meetings about bike plans for the City. 

Brian is a Professional Services Engineer for Neustar (helping companies avoid performance problems and protect their websites through load capacity testing) and often finds himself working  on Leylla’s projects. When talking to Brian about the video he and his friends produced for Bike To Work Week, he told us “We figure the more the message gets to the public the more people will ride.  This will bring more support from local, state and federal governments to provide services necessary to keep cyclist safe.”

Their video is a great promotion of biking as a transportation lifestyle and definitely has the touch of a professional hand or two.  This is phenomenal work, and it is easy to appreciate their message.  Biking to work is a great way to start of your day!  Brian and the others were excited about the winnings and, like all who love what they’ve created, are excited to have their video spread around.  “We loved making this and want to share it with others!!”  

The award for “Bold, Not Cold, Bike Advocacy” and "Being Hip on Your Bike Trip", for dedication to cycling as a transportation lifestyle and for bringing professional talents into their advocacy work, we are happy to award BWC memberships to cover Leylla, Kahlisa, and Brian as they cycle around town an across the states with their stylish and bike-attachable Po Campo hand bag.  Congratulations, and we hope your continue to share your passion and love for adventuring and cycling for many years to come.
