60th Harley ride surprise

Nilgun 18.01.20 – 60th Harley ride surprise

The 60th Harley ride surprise was for Nilgun. The ride was arranged by girlfriends for her 60th. She no idea what was going on when our Harley rider Yogi turned up. Judging by her smile, she was pretty stoked about it!

Harley transfer

The ride was a transfer from her place to a friends place, from the north western suburbs, around the Epping area. They had one hour to go the short distance between the two places. So Yogi took Nilgun on a sightseeing tour on the way. Firstly, they headed through the back streets to Pittwater Rd East Ryde.

Upper North Shore

Next, they got onto Delhi Rd, a major thoroughfare, down to Lady Game Dr, Killara, then through to Comenarra Parkway at South Turrumurra. These areas are on the Upper North Shore of Sydney. Continuing on, they rode along Pennant Hills Rd then to North Epping.

Surprise driveway full of people

However, time was up so when they arrived at the end of the ride, Nilgun arrived to a driveway full of people. Her friends and family were all there for her surprise party. In conclusion, the 60th Harley ride surprise was a huge success, it will be a birthday Nilgun will never forget.

Conducted tours

We do conducted tours. This means the rider goes with you and as we ride through an area during the tour, he will explain the area to you. The rider explains everything to you about the area, the sights, Sydney and possibly gives facts about Australia. Even when we do transfers – from one place to another, without an actual route, our Harley and trike riders will still talk to you and explain the areas you ride through.

For many reasons, we can’t supply Harleys or trikes for self riding. We promise that our riders are fun, professional and informative.

Harley tour 3Bridges Sydney

Caroline + Elizabeth 14.01.20 – Harley tour 3Bridges Sydney

Friends on holidays from Scotland, are visiting relatives who are living ‘down under’. The Harley tour 3Bridges Sydney was chosen because it shows a different side to Sydney. Areas most visitors don’t see.

Iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge

Our Harley riders, Jungle and Phil, picked Caroline and Elizabeth up from Circular Quay. We always send a map showing where to meet. Firstly, they rode through the city and over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.

Kirribilli

Next, after riding across the Harbour Bridge they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia.

After that, they rode around the corner to Jeffrey Street Wharf. From here, the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge.

The Kirribilli Loop

They rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is very interesting.

The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. Riding on, they rode back over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge.

They continued riding on through North Sydney and Crows Nest before joining River Road. It is a fun road to ride on. River Road leads to Burns Bay Road which, in turn, leads to another bridge but not one of the main three.

Fig Tree Bridge, Tarban Creek Bridge, Gladesville Bridge

It is the Fig Tree Bridge which opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. After that bridge, they continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge. This spans Tarban Creek, likewise, it has nice views east to the Harbour Bridge. Then they got to bridge #2 of the main 3 Bridges, the Gladesville Bridge. It has wonderful views along Parramatta River towards the Harbour Bridge and the city.

This bridge is on the main arterial thoroughfare of Victoria Road. They 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 saw some lovely water views. It is part of the 7 km long Bay Run.

ANZAC Bridge

Continuing on, riding onto the incredible ANZAC Bridge – bridge #3. Similarly, it is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view.

Most noteworthy, the stay cable design concept development and final design for the new bridge were carried out by the Roads & Traffic Authority of NSW. Finally, the bridge was opened to traffic on 3 December 1995 as the Glebe Island Bridge.

The bridge was given its current name on Remembrance Day in 1998 to honour the memory of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (known as Anzacs) who served in World War I.

However, time was nearly up so Jungle and Phil dropped them back at Circular Quay. Our passengers thought the popular Harley tour 3Bridges Sydney was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.

north beaches Harley tour

Luke 13.01.20 – north beaches Harley tour

Luke lives on the lower northern beaches and had always wanted to go on a Harley. So, he organised the north beaches Harley tour using a gift voucher he had received.

Manly, Queenscliff, Curl Curl etc

Pat picked Luke up from his home and they rode along the northern beaches coastline. They called into Manly and rode along the front of Manly Beach. This led past Queenscliff, Freshwater and Curl Curl Beach. All are such lovely, clean, sandy, clear water beaches. Then it was past North Curl Curl, Dee Why, Long Reef and Collaroy Beaches.

Narrabeen, Mona Vale and Newport Beach

There are so many beaches along the way, about 23. These are from Manly Beach all the way up to Palm Beach. However, we didn’t get to Palm Beach. After Collaroy they rode past Narrabeen and Mona Vale Beaches, and ended up at Newport Beach.

Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park

Time was almost up, therefore, Pat turned around and headed back to Luke’s home. They rode home a different way, on the Wakehurst Parkway. This leads past the lovely Narrabeen Lagoon and through part of Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. A lovely part of Australia.

Oxford Falls

Oxford Falls is like being in the country but not long after, we arrive in Frenchs Forest and back into suburbia. A little while later Pat dropped Luke back at home. In conclusion, the north beaches Harley tour was a big success. As Luke said “Awesome“!
http://trolltours.com.au/product/design-your-own-ride/

Sydney’s ocean beaches are usually divided into the Northern Beaches, located north of the entrance to Sydney Harbour and the southern beaches which are in the eastern suburbs and Cronulla area. Manly has eight beaches that range from the large 1.6 km Ocean Beach to the tiny Fairy Bower Beach.

Hence the reason Sydney’s ocean beaches are internationally renowned – they are all beautiful, clean, sandy with clear clean water! Oh, good swimming and surfing as well.

80th birthday Harley tour

Del 11.01.20 – 80th birthday Harley tour

Del has done some sort of ride on each of her ‘0’ birthdays since she turned 50. Her son-in-law rang us and organised a 80th birthday Harley tour. Yet another ride for and ‘0’ birthday, her first Harley one!

Pat picked her up from the inner west of Sydney. Firstly they rode through the city and over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Secondly, make sure you look around at the amazing structure, you’ll get a better view without a roof and four walls surrounding you. Thirdly, check out the arches. More than 6,000,000 rivets were used to assemble the various plates on the bridge.

Next they rode along the main north shore thoroughfare – Military Road. This took them through the well-to-do suburbs of Mosman, Beauty Point and over the Spit Bridge. The Spit has lovely views of Middle Harbour.

After that, they reached famous Manly. They drove through the suburb and along the road in front of Manly Beach. It is a lovely clean sandy beach, with the iconic pine trees.

Continuing on, they rode through Queenscliff and Freshwater and onto the Headland. This is where the Harbord Diggers is. They stopped for photos and to admire the view of the Tasman Sea.

However, time was nearly up so Pat headed to the drop off point, Newport Arms. The rest of the family had followed them in three cars. The food is good at the Newport Arms so they were going to continue the 80th celebrations with lunch. In conclusion, the 80th birthday Harley tour was a big success:

A great gift idea! This ride was bought for me and my son as a Christmas present and we both loved it! Steve was our rider – clearly knowledgeable on the local area, very friendly and we always felt safe! If I had to choose between walking over the bridge or riding around the city’s sights on the back of a trike I’d pick this every time!

Bondi eastern Sydney tour

Colm & Dusita 04.01.20 – Bondi eastern Sydney tour

A bit of late notice but we managed to organise a trike rider for the Bondi eastern Sydney tour. We do recommend giving us a few days notice but sometimes we can fit you in anyway.

Bronte Beach, Tamarama & Bondi Beaches

Our passengers, from Ireland, were picked up by Steve from Circular Quay. We always email/text a map of where to meet. Firstly, they rode south east to Bronte Beach. From there, they headed north along the beaches of Tamarama & Bondi. We almost always show the life guard tower made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”.

Watsons Bay and the Gap

Continuing north, they rode to Watsons Bay for a look, made famous by a certain seafood restaurant. They also called in at the Gap. It has wonderful views out over the South Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, it is where a lot of people commit suicide.

Mrs Macquaries Point

Riding back around the posh eastern suburbs of the inner harbour is always nice. They had time to ride through the infamous Kings Cross, Potts Point and down into Woolloomooloo. Then it was to Mrs Macquaries Point which has wonderful views across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Mrs Macquaries Point is a peninsula which was named in 1810 after Elizabeth, Governor Macquarie’s wife, who ordered 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.

However, time was up so Steven dropped the passengers back at Circular Quay. In conclusion, the Bondi eastern Sydney tour was a huge success as you can see by the smiles!
