Other Bicycle Days

Bicycle Day is celebrated on 19 April. The name is misleading and this day celebrates a historical event and not the bicycle. This was the day Dr. Albert Hofmann deliberately took 250mcg of Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) after an accidental discovery by him. Once the drug was in his system, he felt strange changes in perception and experienced anxiety. He therefore decided to ride his bicycle home. The incidents that occurred during this trip lead to LSD's popularity as a recreational drug. World Naked Bike Day is an annual protest event that is held on 10 June. It is a way to show dissent for oil dependency and car culture. This event also highlights the dangers that cyclists face on the road. World Naked Bike Day is held in over 25 countries like UK, USA, France, Germany, Israel, Australia, Canada, Italy, Spain, Austria. The dates may vary in some countries depending in the weather. The very first Naked Bike ride was held in Zaragoza, Spain in 2001. Although it is known as World Naked Bike Ride, you do not need to be nude in order to participate in the event. Apart from the bicycle, one may use inline skates, roller blades, unicycles, skateboards or any other body -powered conveyance.
