Jayne organised a Harley ride across 3 Bridges of Sydney. She and her husband are from England and having a holiday for a couple of weeks in Sydney. Jayne really wanted to see Sydney while on the back of a Harley. She also wanted to go over the Sydney Harbour Bridge so why not go over all the main 3 bridges Sydney!
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Jungle picked Jayne up from her hotel in the CBD. Firstly they rode through the city and over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Look up and enjoy the unusual view of the rivets and the arches. Often you can see people climbing the icon.
Secondly, they stopped at Kirribilli Wharf for photos and to admire the beautiful view. It looks south across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD.
After that, they did the Kirribilli Loop – as suggested before – look up! You will see the underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge.
They finished the loop by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. They continued on into the lower north shore suburbs of North Sydney and Wollstonecraft. In addition, rode along the lovely River Road into Lane Cove. Next was the first bridge but not one of the main three.
Fig Tree Bridge – an extra!
The Fig Tree Bridge opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. They continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge. This spans Tarban Creek. Then they rode onto the second 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. They followed the shoreline of Iron Cove which is part of the Parramatta River. Stopping for photos at Rodd Point is worth it, so they could have a proper look at part of the 7 km long Bay Run.
Continuing on the ride, the incredible ANZAC Bridge was next. It is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view. However, time was up so they rode into the city before being dropped back at Circular Quay.
In conclusion, Jayne thought the Harley ride across 3 Bridges was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about. Some locals that is, not all! The Harley ride across 3 Bridges was a total success!
