Join us for the launch of Oppy: The Life of Sir Hubert Opperman by Daniel Oakman – curator, historian and bike rider.
Hubert ‘Oppy’ Opperman was a sporting icon, a cycling phenomenon whose epic feats of endurance captivated the cycling world. For over two decades, he dominated almost every race he entered and shattered record after record in Australia and Great Britain. In 1928, he led the first Australasian team to ever contest the Tour de France.
The book will be launched by former professional cyclist Phil Anderson.
Free, no booking required.
