The peaceful South Australian rural city of Murray Bridge is set to be awoken on the weekend of September 23 – 24 when more than 15,000 people descend on the riverside town for the Australian International Pedal Prix, the world’s largest Human Powered Vehicle race.
The 2017 race will be the 32nd running of the ever-growing event, which has impacted the lives of an estimated 100,000 South Australians since its inception in 1986.
Constituting the 5th and final round of the UniSA Australian Human Powered Vehicle Super Series, it will be the 21st running of the event in Murray Bridge.

The race is conducted on a 1.7 km tarmac circuit around Sturt Reserve situated on the banks of the Murray River. 210 teams, 3,200 competitors and thousands of spectators make the riverside parkland home for the three days.
