40th birthday trike tour

Aaron + Melissa 16.08.19 – 40th birthday trike tour

Aaron bought his wife Melissa, the 40th birthday trike tour. He came with her on the ride. In Sydney for a short while, to celebrate her birthday, Aaron thought this would be a cool way to take her to their lunch place.

Bondi Beach

Our trike rider Craig, picked up them up from their hotel in Bondi Beach. It had been preplanned that he rode them to Sydney city via some of the eastern beaches.

Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee Beaches

Firstly, they traveled past the small but beautiful Tamarama Beach. Continuing on, they rode further south to Bronte and Clovelly Beaches. Similarly, they rode on to the famous Coogee Beach.

Centennial Park

After that, they headed north west to the lovely Centennial Park. It is a peaceful and lovely park to ride through. Generally you can see lots of different sorts of ducks, horses and flora.

Riding on, they rode through the inner eastern suburbs. However, time was up so Craig dropped them at Circular Quay. They will continue exploring the city after they celebrate Melissa’s birthday with lunch.

In conclusion, the 40th birthday trike tour was a success. An experience Melissa never thought she’d do. It made for a memorable birthday!

Clovelly Beach is a small and tranquil beach located at the end of a narrow bay. Concrete platforms and promenades have been constructed on both sides of the bay which are popular sun-baking spots. Access steps go into the water, making Clovelly Beach more like a large ocean pool than a beach.

The name Coogee is taken from a local Aboriginal word koojah which means “smelly place” owing to the amount of seaweed that can collect on the beach. Daily beach cleaning by Randwick City Council staff keeps the beach in pristine condition year-round.

Centennial Park was dubbed The People’s Park, when it was opened in 1888. Many people do not know it was the site of the inauguration of Australia’s Federation in 1901. The birthplace of modern Australia and arguably the nation’s most historically significant public park.

Harley trike tour Sydney

Pharma Group 13.08.19 – Harley trike tour Sydney

This corporate group was in Sydney for a short time. They reckoned a Harley trike tour Sydney was the best way to see the sights – and it is!

Five Harleys and a trike rider picked them up from their hotel in Darling Harbour. It was in the middle of peak hour but we still managed to give them a good ride.

Mrs Macquarie’s Point

Firstly, they went to Mrs Macquarie’s Point where they stopped for photos. The view from here is spectacular, looking across Sydney Harbour to The Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

This is also where Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is located but we can’t see it from the road. If there is time, we can stop and the passengers can walk to it, it isn’t far off the road.

Harry’s Cafe De Wheels and Kings Cross

Next, they rode through Woolloomooloo and past the famous Harry’s Cafe De Wheels. Up into the infamous Kings Cross though it’s tame now compared to its heyday. They continued on into the city.

However, time was up so our riders dropped our passengers back at their hotel. Exploring Sydney, the group continued by checking out some places to eat dinner.

In conclusion, the Harley trike tour Sydney was a huge success. Note the smiles on their faces!

Mrs Macquarie’s Chair (also known as Lady Macquarie’s Chair) is an exposed sandstone rock cut into the shape of a bench, on a peninsula in Sydney Harbour. Convicts hand carved it in 1810, for Elizabeth Macquarie, the wife of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of New South Wales.

Harry’s Café de Wheels – the story of ‘Harry’s Café de Wheels’ goes back to the depression years of the late 1930’s.

With the world on the brink of a devastating war, an enterprising Sydneysider by the name of Harry Edwards opened a caravan café near the front gates of the Woolloomooloo naval dockyard.

Word spread quickly with Harry’s ‘pie n’ peas’ and crumbed sausages soon becoming a popular, as a result it became part of the city’s nightlife – keenly sought by sailors, soldiers, cabbies, starlets and coppers alike. Harry operated the caravan until 1938 when he enlisted in the AIF during WWII.

Harley tour for birthday

Catherine + Deborah 12.08.19 – Harley tour for birthday

Catherine gave the Harley tour for birthday present to Deb. They both had a ball! Phil and Pez picked them up from a prearranged spot in the Rocks.

Firstly they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is one of the most iconic bridges in the world. It is great to see the arches up above your head so make sure you look up. On Harleys (or a trike) there is no metal to ruin your view.

Blues Point Reserve

Next, they rode to Blues Point where they stopped for photo at the Reserve. Similarly, to all around the harbour, it has wonderful views across Sydney Harbour. Great photos can be taken, for instance, of the Harbour Bridge with the Sydney Opera House in the background. If there are no ferries or other boats you can also see Luna Park from here.

Mrs Macquarie’s Point

After that, they rode back over the bridge to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. Similarly, this area also has wonderful views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross

After taking photos they hopped back on the Harleys and rode through Woolloomooloo. This took them past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels and up into the infamous Kings Cross.

However, time was up so they rode to Circular Quay. The passengers disembarked and continued to celebrate Deb’s birthday around Sydney. The Harley tour for birthday was a huge success.

Sydney city Harley ride

Chinese Group 10.08.19 – Sydney city Harley ride

The Sydney city Harley ride was organised for our passengers from China. Due to the weather in Sydney, their plane was delayed. We were able to postpone our riders who picked them up at a later time.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Our five Harley riders picked up our passengers from a restaurant in the city. Firstly, they rode through the city and over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We ride over it so many times but above all, it is a view and an experience we never tire of. However, make sure you look up to see the arches in all their glory. They are wonderful to look at without the roof of a car blocking the view.

Blues Point Reserve

We like to take our passengers somewhere with a good backdrop to take photos. So they stopped at Blues Point for photos and to admire the view. It is a spectacular view across Sydney Harbour towards the Opera House and the CBD.

Lower North Shore

Next, they rode up into Neutral Bay, part of the lower North Shore of Sydney. It is interesting to see the shops but be careful what time of day you go. The main thoroughfare, Military Road, get extremely busy.

Mrs Macquarie’s Point

After that, they rode back over The Bridge to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. Another Sydney icon is Mrs Macquarie’s Chair but you can’t see it from the road. Depending on the tour you are doing, we can stop so you can do the quick walk to it. This route also takes you past the Art Gallery of New South Wales. It is a beautiful and imposing building.

However, time was up so our Harley riders dropped the passengers back at their hotel. In conclusion, the Sydney city Harley ride was a success. Our passengers saw many of the famous sights and enjoyed being on the back of a Harley. http://trolltours.com.au/tours-and-prices/

Harley north shore ride

George 10.08.19 – Harley north shore ride

George organised the Harley north shore ride. He and his wife are down from Dubbo to do the City to Surf tomorrow. Dubbo is about 400 km north west of Sydney. So, why not do something fun and see the sights at the same time!? George is glad he did.

Sydney Harbour Bridge and Kirribilli

Our Harley rider Phil, picked George up from their hotel in the city. Firstly, he took him over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Kirribilli, on the north side of the Harbour Bridge. There, they stopped for photos and a look at the wonderful views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD. A view we never tire of. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge.

Bradleys Head

Continuing on, they headed down to Bradleys Head. Bradleys Head is a headland protruding from the north shore of Sydney Harbour. In addition, on the way down you will ride past Taronga Zoo. For instance, you may see koalas eating their leaves from the tree tops.

Balmoral Beach

After that, they rode past Balmoral Beach. The Promenade along the Esplanade at Balmoral Beach was completed in 1926. It really is a lovely place and very popular with Sydneysiders during summer. It is a very safe place for a swim.

The Spit Bridge

Next, the road led to the Spit Bridge lookout, where this photo was taken. It has beautiful views towards Middle Harbour and back towards Balmoral Beach.

However, the 1.5 hours was up so Phil rode George back to his hotel. In conclusion, the Harley north shore ride was a huge success and George couldn’t keep the smile off his face.

The Lower North Shore refers to the northern suburbs of Sydney adjoining Sydney Harbour. The three bodies of water that surround the Lower North Shore are Lane Cove River on its western border, Sydney Harbour on its south side, and Middle Harbour on its east. The Lower North Shore borders the Upper North Shore when the Lane Cover River and Middle Harbour are at their closest.

scenic Sydney trike tour

Nick + Carer 10.08.19 – scenic Sydney trike tour

Previously Nick has taken trike rides with us. He absolutely loves being on the trike so his brother Ben organised the scenic Sydney trike tour. Nick has cerebral palsy and the trike is perfect for him. It is safe and stable with seatbelts for each passenger. Nick can sit in the middle behind the rider and hold on.

Kirribilli Loop

Craig picked Nick and his carer up from Kirribilli. Firstly, they enjoyed the beautiful view across Sydney Harbour to the Opera House. To the right, there is a wonderful view of the side and underneath of the Harbour Bridge.

Continuing on what we call “the Kirribilli Loop”, they rode under the north end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Similarly, this gives a very different perspective to the bridge from any other. They rode past the Luna Park entrance road and past North Sydney Olympic Pool before heading over the bridge.

Kings Cross

Next, they rode through Woolloomooloo and past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels. Then they rode up into the infamous red light district of Kings Cross. Kings Cross is no longer what it was in its heyday, but it is still interesting to ride through.

South Head Peninsula

After that, they rode through the eastern suburbs of Rushcutters Bay and Vaucluse. Then they rode up the South Head Peninsula to the famous Watsons Bay, home to Doyles a famous fish and chips shop.

Near Watsons Bay is “The Gap”. It has wonderful views out to the Tasman Sea. Unfortunately, it is also called Suicide Gap as many people take their own lives here.

Bondi Beach and other eastern Sydney beaches

Then they rode back down the peninsula to the iconic Bondi Beach. They stopped for photos and to check out the view. Continuing on, they rode past the eastern beaches of Tamara and Bronte. This really was a scenic Sydney trike tour!

There was time to ride though the lovely Centennial Park. However, the 1.5 hours was just about up. So Craig rode them back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and dropped them back at Jeffrey Street Wharf, Kirribilli.

In conclusion, the scenic Sydney trike tour was a huge success, Nick had a smile on his face the whole ride. http://trolltours.com.au/product/design-your-own-ride/

birthday celebrations trike tour

Alan, Joy + Oliver 04.08.19 – birthday celebrations trike tour

Michelle organised the Birthday celebrations trike tour for her family. Her son turned 13, her Dad turned 70 and her mother-in-law turned 60. She organised the ride as a surprise and the three passengers were very surprised but very happy!

The parents are visiting Sydney from South Africa, here to see family. They have been to Sydney before so Michelle thought the trike was a good way to experience more. However, they hadn’t seen the northern beaches before so we showed them around the Peninsula.

Craig picked them up from their hotel in the city. Firstly they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is a view and an experience we never tire of. However, make sure you look up to see the arches in all their glory. They are wonderful to look at without the roof of a car blocking the view.

First stop was Jeffrey Street Wharf. Of course they had to stop for photos and to admire the gorgeous view. It is a spectacular view across Sydney Harbour towards the Opera House and the CBD. There is also an interesting perspective to the Harbour Bridge.

The Kirribilli Loop

They continued on, doing what we call “The Kirribilli Loop”. This takes us under the north end of the bridge. Pass by the entrance to Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.

After that they rode through the northern suburbs of Neutral Bay and Mosman. Continuing down Military road, they rode past the lovely and well known Balmoral Beach. People from all over Sydney come here for a swim and a bite to eat.

Middle Harbour

Next, they rode over the Spit Bridge with it’s lovely views of Middle Harbour. Up into Seaforth for a beautiful view of Middle Harbour. After that they rode to Tania Park, part of Dobroyd Head. Another view we never tire of – the fabulous Sydney Heads – both north and south!

Palm Beach and Pittwater

After that, they continued up through the northern beaches peninsula and past some of the beautiful beaches. In addition, they got to see Palm Beach, of Home and Away fame, is a beautiful beach we admit. Similarly, Whale Beach next door is stunning. Craig showed the passengers all around the area including the stunning Pittwater. It is part of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.

However, after a few photo stops and a walk around parts of the area, the 3 hours was up. It sure goes fast when you are having fun!

Craig dropped them off at Manly where all the family was meeting up. Manly is a good place to meet up, for instance, there is a large range of restaurants in Manly to choose from. In conclusion, the birthday celebrations trike tour was a huge success.

60th birthday Harley tour

Marian 02.08.19 – 60th birthday Harley tour

The 60th birthday Harley tour was a huge success. We organised Marian’s gift voucher with some of her family. They knew she would be coming to Australia from the UK for a holiday.

However, we could tell she was a bit hesitant about the Harley tour. For instance, Marian kept asking questions and seemed to be trying to put off the Harley tour. No way!

We reckon her brother and family (who bought the Gift Voucher) and her husband Spud, made her do it. Well, they had to as it was her 60th birthday Harley tour present!

Phil the Harley rider wrote – “Marian is out from the UK with her husband Spud to visit her brother. She was a bit hesitant at first but in the end she loved it – it “exceeded all expectations” were her words”.

Phil picked Marian up from The Rocks, in Sydney. As often happens, the rider and the passenger(s) discuss the route. This time, they both decided the 3 Bridges tour was the ideal ride to do.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

So, after picking Marian up at the Rocks, he rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. As we keep telling everyone – look up! Without a roof blocking your view, you will really be able to appreciate the arches.

Jeffrey Street Wharf, Kirribilli

After that, they stopped at Jeffrey Street Wharf, Kirribilli on the north side of the Harbour Bridge. It has wonderful views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD. A view we never tire of. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge.

They continued 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. 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

They continued 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. Riding into the city is always interesting, However, time was up. Phil dropped Marian back at The Rocks. She thought the 60th birthday Harley tour was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
http://trolltours.com.au/product/three-bridges-trike-tour/

In conclusion, 60th birthday Harley tour was a huge success, another “best birthday present ever”.

Testimonial

Hi Katrina,
I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic ride I had with Phil today. I was very nervous and he made me feel relaxed and safe. He was very friendly and knowledgeable.

The route was amazing, I saw so much. The ride exceeded my expectations and this was down to Phil and his gorgeous bike.
Will definitely be recommending this trip to any one visiting Sydney.

Thank-you so much for all your friendly help with the booking.
From a very happy
Marian

Dobroyd Head trike tour

Patty + Carer 01.08.19 – Dobroyd Head trike tour

Patty is in a nursing home and a wish of hers was to go for a Harley ride. She isn’t capable of sitting on the back of a Harley but she can easily sit on the back of a trike. So we organised the Dobroyd Head trike tour which also included Manly.

Dobroyd Head

Craig picked Patty and a carer up from the nursing home in North Manly. Firstly they rode to Clontarf and then onto Tanya Park at Dobroyd Head. The view across Sydney Harbour to both the Heads is just stunning.

Manly, Freshwater, Curl Curl and Dee Why Beaches

Next they rode along the famous Manly Beach until they arrived at Freshwater Beach. Similarly, they rode past the beautiful beaches of Curl Curl and Dee Why beaches.

The northern beaches

We just love the northern beaches. However, the hour was nearly up so Craig rode them back to the drop off point at North Manly. In conclusion, the Dobroyd Head trike tour including some of the northern beaches, was a huge success.

The general manager of the nursing home wrote:
“Patty had a wonderful time , she has requested to have another ride soon.
Craig was great good all round.
Regards
Esther”

The general manager is giving all the affiliated nursing homes our details. The trike is perfect for those who have physical or mental disabilities. The trikes all have seat belts and we only use accredited, professional and safe riders.

The Northern Beaches is an area in the northern coastal suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales. It is near the Pacific coast. This area extends south to the entrance of Port Jackson (Sydney Harbour), west to Middle Harbour and north to the entrance of Broken Bay.

We have many scenic tours all around Sydney, this is just an example of one of them. Similarly, we can adjust any tour to take you where you’d like to go.
