A trike birthday tour was bought for Erica’s birthday present by Jeanette who went along for the ride. Craig picked them up from their hotel in Sydney and rode to Centennial Park. They continued out to Bronte and the famous Bondi Beach before being dropped at Circular Quay. It was a fun ride and a very memorable birthday present.
