The trike Northern Beaches tour was organised by Ralph for his wife’s birthday. It was a surprise so we had to be careful how we contacted each other. Well, it worked, Karen received a fabulous, huge surprise.
Manly Beach and Queenscliff
Craig picked Ralph and Karen up from near the ferry wharf at Manly. Firstly, they rode up the northern beaches. Past the famous Manly Beach and Queenscliff, which is the northern end of Manly Beach.
Curl Curl, Dee Why and Mona Vale Beaches
Next, they rode past the lovely Curl Curl Beach, there are wonderful views here. After that was Dee Why Beach and a few others until they arrived at Mona Vale. This is approx 35kms north of Sydney CBD.
In addition, they rode the length of Wakehurst Parkway. It is a good ride, trees on both sides and a slightly higher speed limit. This brought them to Clontarf, another lovely suburb, on the lower northern beaches.
Spit Bridge, Balmoral Beach and Middle Harbour
Continuing on, they rode over the Spit Bridge. It has pretty views of Middle Harbour. Of course, you have to see the beautiful Balmoral Beach so they rode past it. Then it was back onto Military Road, the main road through Mosman and the lower north shore.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Naturally, the ride across the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a highlight of our tours. However, the 2 hours was up so Craig dropped the passengers off on Bligh Street in the City. From there they could continue their birthday celebrations.
In conclusion, the trike Northern Beaches tour, the surprise present was a real success. Ralph and Karen saw so much and enjoyed being on the back of the trike. They could chat together about the beautiful sights they rode past. Also, there was some stopping or a stretch and photos.
