Joe Knickerbocker is the father of Nebraska BMX Hall of Fame rider Scott Knickerbocker. When the Mr. Bike team riders and parents organized to build the first BMX track in Nebraska, it was Joe they called upon to do much of the excavating and construction work. Joe helped build that first track - the infamous Yankee Hill BMX track west of town in the old Yankee Hill Brick quarry, and three years later he also helped build the Lincoln YMCA track which operated for many years on 70th Street near Holdrege St.

Joe was also anywhere the Nebraskans could be found around the Midwest in those early years- at regional and national events. He was inducted into the Nebraska BMX Hall of Fame on August 21, 2010.
