A great family-friendly bike ride through Knox - it's fitness, it's fun and it's free!
The Oppy Bike Ride is a tribute to one of Australia’s greatest cyclists, Sir Hubert Opperman, who lived in the City of Knox. During his time, Sir Hubert Opperman won awards in the Tour De France, Olympic Games and held many world records in cycling. As a tribute to Oppy’s contribution to cycling, Knox erected numerous Oppy Statues located around Knox’s bike paths and began the Oppy Bike Ride.
For over 10 years, Knox City Council has been supporting the Oppy Bike Ride to ensure that his name lives on. In 2013, Knox City Council expanded the number of available routes and evolved it into a fun task base ride suitable for all levels of cyclists and their families and friends.
