About this exciting and educational event
At Bicycle Day SF, everyone is seeking to amplify that signal and broadcast good vibrations. By doing that, people at the event honor the Good Doctor and all of those who followed in his footsteps, as well as push the envelope with new technologies that seek to entertain, inspire and evoke conscious evolution.
“Psychedelic Culture” has been called the family of light, and those that get it, understand. The idea of union and a collective good is a core principle in the psychedelic experience. A feeling of connection, good vibes, and deeper understanding is part of the trip. Everyone at Bicycle Day SF will embrace that and once again celebrate the Good Doctor, Albert Hofmann, and the bicycle ride that changed the world.
