Bill organised the surprise 3 Bridges ride with us for his wife Tammy. Five years ago we picked them up for their wedding getaway. Taking them from their wedding reception to their hotel. So Bill thought it would be a great idea to surprise his wife with another trike tour for their fifth anniversary.
Craig picked them up from the Park Royal Hotel in the CBD. Tammy received a great surprise! They did the 3 Bridges ride, which is always a good one.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode through town to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is one of the most iconic structures in Sydney, if not Australia. Make sure you look up to take it all in, it looks so different than if you were in a car.
After that, they stopped at Jeffrey Street Wharf for a look at the beautiful view. Look across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House – for instance, it is one of the most iconic buildings in the world. You’ll also see the Harbour Bridge from a different perspective. They rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is interesting.
The Kirribilli Loop was by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. Riding further, they continued on into the lower north shore suburbs of North Sydney and Wollstonecraft. They 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. After that, 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. Travelling along for a short time before they turned off into the inner west suburb of Drummoyne. Following the shoreline of Iron Cove is very peaceful and scenic, it is part of the Parramatta River. They stopped for photos at Rodd Point 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 off at Sydney Tower. Bill had booked dinner to continue the celebrations.
Above all, our passengers loved the surprise 3 Bridges ride, thought it was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about. Some locals that is, not all! In conclusion – the surprise 3 Bridges ride was a total success!
