Sydney city Harley tour

Pauline 15.02.19 – Sydney city Harley tour

Pauline thought a Sydney city Harley tour would be an exciting experience and it was. Perry picked her up from her hotel and rode her around the city. They rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Blues Point Reserve. They stopped for photos and to admire the beautiful view. It really is a lovely view across Sydney Harbour to the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

They explored more of the northern suburbs before heading to the Royal Botanical Gardens and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. This area also has beautiful views towards the harbour and the iconic sights of The Bridge and Opera House.

Next they drove through Woolloomooloo and past the original and iconic Harry’s Cafe De Wheels. The story of ‘Harry’s Café de Wheels’ goes back to the depression years of the late 1930’s. It is known for its delicious pies and hot dogs. It is an interesting read so there is a link to the site at the end of this tour description.

From Woolloomooloo they rode up into the infamous Kings Cross. Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross are the start of the eastern suburbs. Kings Cross became known as Sydney’s night entertainment and red-light district, however many nightclubs, bars and adult entertainment venues closed due to the Sydney lockout laws.

Perry rode through the city with Pauline before dropping her back at her hotel so she could continue exploring our wonderful city on foot. A Sydney city Harley tour really is a great way to see a lot of the famous sights in such a short time.

The phrase ‘Café de Wheels’ came about as the city council of the day insisted that mobile food caravans move a minimum of 12 inches a day. Harry dutifully obeyed and thus the name was expanded to Harry’s Café de Wheels. https://www.harryscafedewheels.com.au/history

Sydney sightseeing trike ride

Jackie + Geoff 15.02.19 – Sydney sightseeing trike ride

A Sydney sightseeing trike ride is definitely the best way to see the sights. From the UK, our passengers are here on a holiday for a short time. Steve picked them up at Circular Quay and took them on the Harbour Bridge Ride. Of course, the major attraction is the Harbour Bridge. It is great to ride over it without a roof blocking the view.

This way the structure of the bridge is more evident and impressive. Their first stop was Blues Point Reserve. There are wonderful views across Parramatta River where it joins Sydney Harbour. There is also a lovely view of the Harbour Bridge from the west side, looking east, with the Sydney Opera House in the background.

Next they did the Kirribilli Loop before heading back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Royal Botanical Gardens. It has a a fabulous view in reverse. At the forefront is the Opera House with the Harbour Bridge in the background. Steve dropped them back at Circular Quay so they could catch the ferry back to Manly where they are staying.

A Sydney sightseeing trike ride is definitely worth doing especially if you have only a short time here. We can take you to the eastern suburbs or the northern beaches. To the Southern National Park or the Blue Mountains. It is really up to you.

The Parramatta River is an intermediate tide dominated, drowned valley estuary. Basically this means it is a drowned river valley that remains open to the sea. With an average depth of 5.1 metres (17 ft), the Parramatta River is the main tributary of Sydney Harbour, a branch of Port Jackson. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parramatta_River

The beautiful Blue Mountains are a mountainous region and a mountain range located about 50 kilometres (31 mi) west of Sydney city.

trike touring around Sydney

Qu Family 15.02.19 – trike touring around Sydney

Trike touring around Sydney was the best way to see Sydney in such a short time frame. They organised the Eastern Panorama tour with us. Firstly they had a lovely lunch at the Sydney Fish Markets at Pyrmont. Then Craig picked them up from there and took them on the tour.

They rode under the Sydney Harbour Bridge at Dawes Point, it has lovely views across the harbour to Luna Park. There are also great views of the Opera House across Hickson Road Reserve. It is the area where the ferries come and go past which we find interesting.

Next they rode around the Royal Botanical Gardens and past Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. It also has lovely views of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, from a different perspective. They continued through Woollomooloo and through the infamous Kings Cross.

Next stop was Rose Bay where the seaplanes take off, it is a lovely scenic area. They continued further into the eastern suburbs and of course they had to visit the famous Bondi Beach. They saw a few other sights before heading back into the city. They were dropped off to continue exploring by foot. Trike touring around Sydney definitely is a fun experience and you will definitely get to see an overview of certain parts of the city.

Dawes Point is located on the north-western edge of the Sydney central business district, at the southern end of Sydney Harbour Bridge, adjacent to The Rocks. It has a lot of first settlement history. Lieutenant William Dawes (1762-1836), was an astronomer with the First Fleet. The point was renamed in honour of Dawes. In 1788 it was the site of the first guns mounted in Sydney by Dawes. It also contained Sydney’s first cemetery and later Dawes Point Battery.

Valentine present trike tour

John + Sarina 14.02.19 – Valentine present trike tour

A romantic, John organised a Valentine present trike tour for his lovely wife. Steve picked them up from their home in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. He took them on a romantic ride through the eastern suburb where they stopped to look at the famous Bondi Beach which was still busy in the late afternoon, as it always is. They continued south along the coastline and rode past the lovely beaches such as Tamarama and Coogee.

Steve then turned around and rode them back through Centennial Park and some of the inner eastern suburbs to a local restaurant in Woollahra. The Valentine present trike tour was an unusual but very fun experience to do on Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t have to be for Valentine’s Day, we celebrate love everyday of the year.

Bondi Beach is a popular beach and the name of the surrounding suburb and is located 7 km (4 mi) east of the Sydney CBD. Bondi Beach is one of the most visited tourist sites in Australia.

The Tasman Sea and Coogee Bay along with Coogee Beach lie towards the eastern side of the suburb. The beach is popular among families and famous for its safe swimming conditions.

Woollahra is an Aboriginal word meaning meeting ground or a sitting down place. It was adopted by Sir Daniel Cooper, 1st Baronet (1821–1902), the first speaker of the legislative assembly of NSW, when he laid the foundations of Woollahra House, Point Piper in 1856. Cooper and his descendants were responsible for the establishment and progress of the suburb. The suburb name was taken from his house name.

Woollahra was the home of John McGarvie Smith, a metallurgist and biochemist who produced the first preservable anthrax vaccine.

50th birthday Harley tour

Doreen + Narelle 10.02.19 – 50th birthday Harley tour

It was Doreen’s 50th birthday so Narelle bought them both a 50th birthday Harley tour. They live about an hour south west of Sydney so came up especially for the ride. They heard the Harleys roar up the street way before they could see them. Jungle and Perry picked them up from Surry Hills and took them on the ride of their life.

They rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Kirribilli where there are wonderful views across Sydney Harbour towards the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. After photos they rode around some of the lower north shore suburbs.

Next they rode back over the bridge to the Royal Botanical Gardens. They stopped so Doreen + Narelle could go for a short stroll to see the beautiful views. The riders then took them back to Surry Hills so they could go out for a nice lunch and continue the 50th birthday celebrations.

Doreen had ridden pilion on a Harley many times in the past and loved it. She mentioned how much she missed it to Narelle who thought it a great idea to organise a 50th birthday Harley tour to celebrate. It was a hit, Doreen loved it.

Harley and trike tour Sydney

Chen Family 09.02.19 – Harley and trike tour Sydney

Our passengers from Tawian thought a Harley and trike tour Sydney would show them more than the usual tourist traps – and it did. Our Harley riders Jungle and Phil and our trike rider Steve, picked them up from their hotel. They rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge which is a major landmark and well worth doing.

They stopped at Blues Point for photos of the beautiful harbour. There are wonderful views across the harbour to the Sydney Opera House. There is also a great view of the Harbour Bridge from a different than usual perspective.

They rode on and did the 3 Bridges tour. It is one of our riders favourite rides and it does tour through areas of Sydney most visitors don’t get to see. The next major bridge they rode over is the Gladesville Bridge. We love the views from it, they look eastward over Parramatta River towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city.

Next they did a detour off the main arterial road through the inner west suburbs of Rozelle, Lilyfield, Haberfield, Five Dock and Drummoyne. They followed part of the Bay Run. It is a 7km long (4.3 mi) shared use path for cyclists and pedestrians that encircles much of Iron Cove. It never deviates more than 20m from the water so the views are pretty nice.

They continued the 3 Bridges ride which meant they next rode over the incredible ANZAC Bridge. We just love it! It is great without a roof over ones head because you can see the arch and supports so much easier. They continued through the city back to their hotel.

A Harley and trike tour Sydney was a fun and memorable experience and our passengers saw parts of Sydney they wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Smiles all round!

90th birthday party trike transfer

Jennifer + Joy 09.02.19 – 90th birthday party trike transfer

Joy’s son organised a 90th birthday party trike transfer from the whole family. It was a great surprise for her and it was something Joy had never thought about doing before. Jennifer, Joy’s daughter, came along on the ride as well.

Kym our trike rider picked them up at home and even though the destination was only a few kilometres away, they went on a one hour adventure. Kym knows the south eastern suburbs of Sydney very well so they had a really fun time. They rode past places such as Cronulla State Park, Taren Point and San Souci.

Finally the time arrived when Kym dropped them off at the surprise birthday party. It was a huge and unexpected surprise but reaching 90 is such a milestone and one that needs to be celebrated. The whole day was a great fun.

The 90th birthday party trike transfer was such a great idea and a huge success. We can organise a trike transfer for you as well – and you don’t have to be 90! 😉

http://trolltours.com.au/product/design-your-own-ride/

Cronulla State Park is a lovely area with a good beach walk to do. Walk south and you’ll reach Oak Park ocean pool and barbeque area, and just a little further on you’ll take the small incline up to Bass and Flinders Point. The monument will give you information about these two explorers from Captain Cook’s ship, who explored and named the Port Hacking in 1796 in their little rowing boat called the Tom Thumb II.

The Cronulla Beach Walk follows more than four kilometres of coastline south from Wanda Surf Lifesaving Club to Bass and Flinders Point, where the Hacking River meets the Tasman Sea. You can start the walk from any point along the Esplanade. We can drop you there after a Harley or trike ride.

trike adventure around Sydney

USA Friends 08.02.19 – trike adventure around Sydney

A trike adventure around Sydney was exactly what our passengers from the USA wanted to do. They wanted to do something out of the ordinary so we took them for a ride on the northern beaches.

Firstly our three Harley trike riders took the three couples over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Kirribilli. We always stop there or at Blues Point Reserve because of the views. Both places have wonderful views over Sydney Harbour towards the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

They then continued travelling north along the northern beaches. First stop was a “secret” lookout at Balgowlah. Almost no-one except the locals know of its existence. There is a great view looking down on the Spit Bridge and the boats moored. The view also looks towards Clontarf and the Heads, we can almost see Balmoral Beach.

The beaches north of here are beautiful, just riding past them makes us feel relaxed. We reckon they are heaps nicer than Bondi Beach but it is up to you to make your own mind up. Next stop was Dobroyd Head with its fantastic views towards the Heads – north and south. The view betweent eh two heads is of the South Pacific Ocean.

They travelled as far up as Narrabeen before turning around and heading back. There are four beaches along the Narrabeen stretch of beach, North Narrabeen, Narrabeen, South Narrabeen and Collaroy beach. They did ride back on a different road, a road which has one of the fastest speed limits in Sydney. It is surrounded by trees and nature on both sides. Sometimes kangaroos and wallabies are seen on the ride.

They continued south to the inner west where they travelled over the next two bridges (of the 3 bridges ride). We love the three main bridges (Sydney Harbour Bridge, Gladesville Bridge and the ANZAC Bridge) of Sydney so we reckon this is one of the best rides we do. We reckon our passengers had the ultimate ride – the northern beaches and the bridges all in one!

If you’d like to do this trike adventure around Sydney or something similar contact us to organise it. We can adapt it to go wherever you have on your list of places to see.

trike tour present Sydney

Darren + Michael 06.02.19 – trike tour present Sydney

A friend bought our passengers a trike tour present Sydney. They don’t live in Sydney so they drove into town and parked downtown. Craig picked them up and took them on the adventure of a lifetime. Firstly they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge where stopped for photos at Kirribilli, how could they not!

The view across the harbour to the Sydney Opera House is beautiful. There is also a great view of the Harbour Bridge from underneath. They continued on and did the 3 Bridges ride.

It takes us through the lower northern beaches, through suburbs such as Crows Nest and Lane Cove. This joins the Gladesville Bridge which has one of the best views towards Sydney Harbour. It is a different perspective than most visitors to Sydney see.

They joined a main arterial road, Victoria Road. This winds through some of the inner west suburbs – Drummoyne and Rozelle. The next bridge they travelled over was the impressive ANZAC Bridge. The architectural design is incredible and it is more incredible on the back of a motorcycle.

Craig then rode through the city before dropping the passengers back at their car. A trike tour present Sydney was the best ever present they could have received!

The Anzac Bridge is an 8-lane cable-stayed bridge spanning Johnstons Bay between Pyrmont and Glebe Island (part of the suburb of Rozelle), close to the central business district of Sydney, Australia. The bridge forms part of the Western Distributor leading from the Sydney CBD and Cross City Tunnel to the Inner West and Northern Suburbs. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anzac_Bridge


birthday Harley Davidson ride

Gloria 02.02.19 – birthday Harley Davidson ride

Gloria always had a dream that her grandson would buy a Harley when he grew up. Then he could take her on rides. It never happened so he, his wife and child organised the birthday Harley Davidson ride for her.

They live on the Central Coast so drove down to Sydney and met Jungle at Circular Quay. They rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and stopped for photos at Kirribilli. There are wonderful views across the Harbour to the Opera House and the city.

They continued on to do the 3 Bridges tour. This meant they rode through the lower north shore suburbs to the inner west. Over the interesting Gladesville Bridge and along Victoria Road, a main arterial road.

Soon they turned off Victoria Road to follow the Bay Run. People come from all over Sydney to walk or run the 7 kms of the Bay Run. It is part of the inner western suburbs and really is a pretty area. The Bay Run travels around the Iron Cove Bay, part of the Parramatta River.

Then they rode over the incredible ANZAC Bridge, through the city and back to Circular Quay. Gloria loved the roar of the Fatboy Harley and she had such a fabulous experience.

A birthday Harley Davidson ride is always one of the best presents you can get someone. Contact us and we will happily help you organise the experience of a lifetime.

The Bay Run is a 7-kilometre-long (4.3 mi) shared use path for cyclists and pedestrians that encircles much of Iron Cove and is located in the inner-western suburbs of Sydney.
