Cycling

There are more than 100km of shared paths throughout the City of Knox that connect with major parks, reserves, schools and shopping precincts.

Please remember when riding on shared paths that these are shared spaces with pedestrians. Cyclists should obey the road rules and reduce speed, give way to pedestrians and be courteous. Cyclists should also alert pedestrians of their presence by using their bell.

Cycling Groups

There are a number of active cycling groups operating within Knox:

In addition, 'She Rides', an initiative of Cycling Australia, provides a suite of introductory riding programs that focus on building fitness, developing skills and creating a social riding community of women. Visit the 'She Rides' website for further details.

Bike Parking

There are over 90 bike parking locations around the municipality, shown on Council's interactive Google based bike parking map.

Bike parking at railway stations and public transport hubs is provided using Parkiteer. This service is free and secure. However, you must pre register prior to your trip.

Sir Hubert Opperman Tribute

Sir Hubert Opperman (1906-1996), one of Australia’s great sporting cyclists, spent the last years of his life in Knox. During the 1920s and 30s, 'Oppy', as he became affectionately known, held virtually every Australian long distance, road racing and track record, as well as many world records, in cycling.

As a tribute to Oppy’s contribution to the sport, several bicycle trails along the Knox cycleway have been named after some of his most famous races. There are a number of commemorative sculptures and memorials placed along the route.

The Opperman Trails include:

  • Oppy’s Way
  • The 101 Trail
  • The Landa End Trail
  • The Trans Continental Trail
  • The Bol D'Or Trail
  • Paris-Brest-Paris Trail
