At very late notice (same day), Luke rang us to organise a birthday surprise trike transfer. We can’t always organise a Harly or trike ride at that short notice, but often we can. So just ring us to find out.
We organised Steve, on the blue trike. He turned up on time at the pick up in Macquarie Street, Sydney. Firstly, they rode through the city and past the Art Gallery of NSW to
Mrs Macquarie’s Point
The view from here looking westward, is beautiful. Most noteworthy, you’ll see the Opera House and Harbour Bridge from a different and interesting perspective.
Harry’s Cafe De Wheels, Finger Wharf and Kings Cross
Next Steve rode through Woolloomooloo. This leads past the interesting Finger Wharf and Harry’s Cafe De Wheels. Then they rode up the hill and through the infamous Kings Cross, through to Rushcutters Bay and Double Bay.
After that, they stopped at the famous Bondi Beach. When in Sydney it is one of the places you should visit. The beach is seriously nice (but not our favourite) and we usually stop near the lifeguard station, made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”. Bondi Beach is one of the most visited tourist sites in Australia.
posh eastern suburbs
Riding back around the posh eastern suburbs of the inner harbour is always nice. Vaucluse, Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay follow Sydney Harbour coastline.
However, time was almost up so they rode through the city and back to the drop off point. The drop off was Observatory Hill, ready to celebrate a milestone birthday.
In conclusion, the birthday surprise trike transfer was a huge surprise and a great success. A birthday they will never forget!
Bondi Beach has a few different hazard ratings therefore, be careful if swimming there. While the northern end has been rated a gentle 4 (with 10 as the most hazardous), the southern side is rated as a 7 due to a famous rip current known as the “Backpackers’ Rip” because of its proximity to the bus stop, the fact that many backpackers and tourists do not realise that the flat, smooth water is a rip, and quite dangerous, and the unwillingness of tourists to walk the length of the beach to safer swimming. The south end of the beach is generally reserved for surfboard riding. Yellow and red flags define safe swimming areas, and visitors are advised to swim between them.
