Today was the start of the school holidays. Adriana decided to treat her 9 year old daughter to a fun experience to celebrate. A school holidays trike tour of the 3 Bridges tour was the perfect start to the holidays, such a fun experience.
A school holidays trike tour
Craig picked them up outside a hotel in the Rocks. Firstly they rode over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is so much fun looking at the structure, the rivets and the arch without any constrictions, except perhaps the helmet.
The next interesting part of the ride was the Kirribilli Loop which travels past Jeffrey Street Wharf. Behind it is a wonderful view across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House. It is fun to ride under the northern section of the Sydney Harbour Bridge so you can see the underbelly of it.
They finished the loop by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. Riding on, they continued on into the lower north shore suburbs of North Sydney and Wollstonecraft. Riding along the lovely River Road and into Lane Cove, the next was the first bridge but not one of the main three.
The Gladesville Bridge
It is the Fig Tree Bridge which opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. They continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge. This spans Tarban Creek. Then they got to the second of the main 3 Bridges, the Gladesville Bridge. It has wonderful views along Parramatta River towards the Harbour Bridge and the city.
The Gladesville Bridge is on the main arterial thoroughfare of Victoria Road. Travelled along for a short while, before turning off into the inner west suburb of Drummoyne. Following the shoreline of Iron Cove which is part of the Parramatta River. They stopped for photos at Rodd Point so they could have a proper look at part of the 7 km long Bay Run.
The incredible ANZAC Bridge is just that, we never tire of riding over it. It is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view. They rode in to the city before being dropped back at Circular Quay. Our passengers thought the school holidays trike tour was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
