Through a tour agent, we organised this Harley trike Sydney tour for a French group of tourists. They are in our wonderful country of Australia for a holiday and a look around. What better way to see the sights and sounds than a Harley and trike tour around Sydney!
There were 14 people in the group, so we organised 6 trikes and 2 Harleys. We gave a few options for a route that would take 3 hours. They chose one that suited their taste.
Pick up was after the passenger’s lunch at a seafood restaurant at Watsons Bay. After all the passengers were instructed in safety and what to do on the Harleys and trikes, such as where to hold on, they set off.
Firstly they rode down the peninsula, along Old South Head Road. We didn’t stop at The Gap as we usually would, they’d had a look before lunch. So the first stop was just not far from the restaurant. It is a very picturesque area and you’ll get a great view of North Head.
Bondi and Bronte Beaches
It was requested we ride to Bondi Beach and Bronte Beach. Second stop, was the famous Bondi Beach. The beach is seriously nice and we usually stop near the lifeguard station, made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”. Next, they continued south past the lovely Tamarama Beach and Bronte Beach.
Another request was to ride through Paddington. Someone had heard it was a nice place to see and it is, there are lots of quaint buildings. We agree, it is a lovely, older area of Sydney.
After that they rode past the Art Gallery of NSW. This leads to Mrs Macquarie’s Point which has beautiful views across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Travelling through the city led them to the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Driving over it is an experience with a view that we never ever tire of. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.
Blues Point Reserve
After riding off the Harbour Bridge, they rode to Blues Point Reserve. This is another area where the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. Also, there is a lovely view of Luna Park.
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 – 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. Similarly, 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. It is also part of the 7 km long Bay Run.
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. Our Harley and trike riders dropped the passengers at a wine bar in a small inner-city suburb. Here, they could continue their exploration of Sydney and Australian wines.
In conclusion, our passengers thought the Harley trike Sydney tour was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
