Inspirasjon :“Bicycle Day” is a blissed out tribute to both medicinal chemistry and two-wheeled transport. Dr. Albert Hoffman first synthesized LSD-25 back in 1938, but did not become aware of its psychedelic properties until April 16th 1943, when he intentionally ingested what is now known to be ten times the threshold dose of LSD. This was during World War II when access to cars was restricted, so the Swiss chemist had to ride his bicycle home from the lab. And so began what may have been the most terrifying and/or magical bike ride in history.
