Happy Bicycle Day! Also, a happy birthday to Brooklyn Psychedelic Society, as today we are officially being (re)born. As many of you know, we’ve been hinting at some big changes coming to BPS and waiting to announce them until the time was right. Today, that day has finally come, and it’s only appropriate that it falls on Bicycle Day.
