National Bicycle Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: April 15, 2017 is National Bicycle Day.

Bicycle Day

Bicycle Day doesn't, as you might expect, celebrate the ever-present two-wheeled mode of transport, beloved of city- and country- residents alike around the world. Rather, it remembers a specific historic event which involves a visit on the bicycle. ‘Trip’ may be the operative word here, as Bicycle Day remember the very first time Dr. Albert Hofmann deliberately required Lysergic acidity diethylamide (LSD) getting accidentally discovered it 72 hours formerly. Following a deliberate 250mcg dose he began to feel just a little odd, so made the decision to ride his bicycle home. What went down with that trip would result in LSD becoming the most popular leisure drug – not without its problems though, and that's why taking LSD isn't a suggested method to celebrate Bicycle Day. Rather, why don't you read Ken Kesey’s One Travelled Within the Cuckoo’s Nest while hearing ‘Lucy on the horizon With Diamonds’? Trippy, but perfectly safe.
