Featuring Rebecca Dharmapalan, Jaz and Mixman Shawn 

Director: Tony Welch
 
The San Francisco Bay Area’s 18th Annual Bike to Work Day’s video is being broadcast to 2M+ Twitter Followers. Produced by award-winning Beyond Pix and Emmy award winning director, Tony Welch, the video is aimed at spreading the word about bicycling in the Bay and will encourage more riders to participate in the annual Bike to Work Day which attracts hundreds of thousands of riders annually and will be held on May 10, 2012. This promotional piece is a three minute music video called ‘The Cycle Beat’ which blends a soft pop song with rap.
 
‘The Cycle Beat’ was created as a part of the San Francisco Bay Area's annual Bike to Work Day which involves all nine Bay Area counties and is part of National Bike Month. Bike to Work Day couldn’t happen without the generous support of our sponsors. Bike to Work 2012 is presented by 511.org, Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Kaiser Permanente with generous additional support by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Chipotle, Clif Bars, Beyond Pix, REI, TypeKit, Adobe, BikeMS and the Bay Area Bicycle Coalition.
