Bicycle Day SF makes their grand return to San Francisco following a two year hiatus due the COVID-19 pandemic at the Midway on Tuesday, April 19th. This year, Bicycle Day SF has included something they've never done before – a daytime programming of keynote panel discussions on all things psychedelia and a film screening. In addition to their brand new offerings, Bicycle Day SF will have their music & art celebration in the evening as they have done in previous years. You can expect performances by acclaimed DJ/Producer Emancipator, Desert Dwellers, Axel Thesleff and Häana.
We are so thrilled to bring back the revered and uniquely Bay Area annual celebration of Bicycle Day for the first time since 2019,” Josh Pollack of Bicycle Day mentions. “Similar to years past, the party will include all things psychedelia, however for the first time we are including a daytime programming of conferences and panel discussions with some legendary figures in the psychedelic community. This includes touching on topics such as decriminalization, therapeutics, research, arts and culture.”
For those of you who aren't already aware, Bicycle Day celebrates Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann(who discovered LSD) and his infamous bike ride after intentionally ingesting the chemical. To celebrate this year's Bicycle Day, Bicycle Day SF will include a sneak peek of filmmaker Seth Ferranti’s latest documentary, “Psychedelic Revolution: The Secret History of the LSD Trade” followed by an interactive panel of leading experts in the fields of activism, research, the arts, and decriminalization. This event is the first of its kind, spanning and combining the most vital topic areas in psychedelics today. Speakers will include medicinal chemist and creator and director of Vice’s Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia Hamilton Morris, Leonard Pickard, Isaac Abrams, Rhoney Stanley, Timothy Tyler, Seth Ferranti, Mark McCloud, Mountain Girl, Ryan Jay Beauregard, and Madison Margolin.

About Bicycle Day SF:
At Bicycle Day SF, we seek to amplify that signal and broadcast that vibration, honoring 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. We embrace that and once again we celebrate the Good Doctor, Albert Hofmann and the bicycle ride that changed the world.
