The Northern Skimmer Harley tour was picked by Kathleen. She was given a voucher for her 50th birthday so she could choose where she wanted to go. Kathleen brought her daughter along as well. Our Harley riders Jungle and Phil, picked them up from Circular Quay. Pick up can be anywhere (depending on the route or time frame you choose). A map will be emailed if needed.
Iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode through the city and over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets were used to assemble the various plates on the bridge. Actually, they are so interesting to look at 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.
Heading north, they rode through the northern suburbs of Sydney. Suburbs such as Artarmon, Frenchs Forest and Terry Hills. This led to Mc Carrs Creek and Church Point. From here there is a lovely view of Pittwater. Pittwater is a semi–mature tide dominated drowned valley estuary, located about 40 kilometres north of the Sydney CBD. So far, teh Northern Skimmer Harley tour is a success.
Then they rode to Mona Vale, Narrabeen and the famous Dee Why. Continuing on, they rode to Curl Curl Beach (one of our favourites). Of course, if you haven’t been past Manly Beach you need to. It’s the second main beach for Sydneysiders. It is only a short ride to North Head, it has wonderful views of South Head and the CBD. After the wonderful North Head, they rode west to the Spit. Crossing the Spit Bridge is fun, it has great views of Middle Harbour.
Lower north shore
Not far south of the Spit Bridge is the posh Balmoral. Balmoral Beach is not so well known by visitors and tourists, but the stunning natural beauty of the beach and surrounds make it well worth a visit. However, the 3 hours was almost up so Jungle and Phil rode our passengers back to the drop off at Circular Quay.
In conclusion, the Northern Skimmer Harley tour was a huge success. Just check out their smiles in the photo.
