The 3Bridges Eastern Sydney trike tour was such a success. In December last year, Vicky did a tour with us by herself, on a Harley with Rock. She was testing us and testing the route. Her family from Taiwan was coming to Australia in January,
Pre-check tour with a combination of two tours
Vicky was checking out whether it was worth taking the rest of the family on a tour. It was! Vicky contacted us and organised two trikes. We took her and her family members on a two and half hour tour.
The 3 Bridges and the Eastern Panorama tours combined
The tour we took the family on, was a combination of our two most popular tours. The 3 Bridges and the Eastern Panorama. 2.5 hours is perfect to join the two tours – to see and experience the best of Sydney.
Steve and Barry picked them all up from their hotel in the inner west of Sydney. Firstly, they rode over the spectacular Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.
Next, after riding across the Harbour Bridge they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia.
After that, they rode around the corner to Jeffrey Street Wharf. From here, the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge.
The Kirribilli Loop
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 very interesting.
The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. Riding on, they rode back over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge.
They continued riding 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, likewise, it has nice views east to the Harbour Bridge. 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.
Continuing 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.
Most noteworthy, the stay cable design concept development and final design for the new bridge were carried out by the Roads & Traffic Authority of NSW. Finally, the bridge was opened to traffic on 3 December 1995 as the Glebe Island Bridge.
The bridge was given its current name on Remembrance Day in 1998 to honour the memory of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (known as Anzacs) who served in World War I.
Then the next tour started:
Continuing on, they rode past the famous Bondi Beach so they rode past the beach and through Bondi. Moreover, the trike certainly was an attention draw card. Therefore, be prepared for plenty of people looking at you!
the infamous Gap
After that, we continued on to the infamous Gap. Unfortunately, The Gap is a well known place for suicides in Australia. But, it has beautiful views to the Tasman Sea. It is an ocean cliff on the South Head peninsula in eastern Sydney.
Following along the New South Head Road, they rode through the eastern suburbs of Vaucluse, Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay.
However, time was nearly up so Steve and Barry dropped them back at their hotel. In conclusion, and most importantly, our passengers thought the popular 3Bridges Eastern Sydney trike tour around Sydney was fantastic. Moreover, the tour was definitely a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
