The surprise 60th trike ride was organised by Hugh’s wife. She reckoned it would be a bit of a hoot for him and their daughter.
Our trike rider Craig, picked Hugh and Charlee up from in front of Luna Park. Hugh did receive a huge surprise and thought it was a great present.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode via Kirribilli to the lower north shore suburb of Neutral Bay. Next, it was onto the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.
Crossing the bridge in good time, they had time to spare so rode to Mrs Macquaries Point.
Mrs Macquarie’s Point
Mrs Macquaries Point has wonderful views across Sydney Harbour. From here, look towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. They stopped for photos and a look at the gorgeous view. Mrs Macquaries Point is a peninsula which was named in 1810 after Elizabeth, Governor Macquarie’s wife. Luckily, being the bosses wife, she could order a seat to be chiselled into the rock from which she could view the harbour. Mrs Macquaries Chair, as it’s known, is still there today. It’s in the Domain but is effectively an extension of the Botanic Gardens.
Interestingly, the traffic is still not back to normal in Sydney, so in addition, there was time to ride through the Rocks. The Rocks is a neighbourhood of historic laneways in the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge. However, time was almost up so they rode back across the Sydney Harbour Bridge before returning to Luna Park.
In conclusion, the surprise 60th trike ride was so much fun for both of the passengers. Just look at the smiles on their faces. One of the best parts of organising the Harley and trike tours is seeing the big smiles on our passenger’s faces.
