The 70th birthday Harley tour was organised as a surprise for Mary. Her daughter Leanne knows how much her Mum loves riding on a Harley. As Leanne wrote later, “She was like a little kid waving her arms when she realised Pat was taking her on a ride”.
We organised our Harley rider Pat to pick Mary up from her home in Narrabeen. We love the northern beaches, it is such a great place to explore. Beautiful beaches, national park with a few curves in the road.
Firstly, they rode up Powder Works Rd. It’s fun on a bike as it is bendy and you really do feel the freedom of being on a bike. Then it was onto Mccarrs Creek Rd. Almost straight away they rode into the lovely Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. So far, the surprise 70th birthday Harley tour was a huge success.
Next, Church Point which is home to artists and authors. The sublime waters are perfect for boats of all shapes and sizes. The road leads to Mona Vale which back at the coast. After that, they headed north to Palm Beach.
There’s a reason that Palm Beach doubles up as the setting for Summer Bay, the fictional beach in TV show Home & Away, the golden sand and sparkling blue sea make it look too good to be true. But there’s more than just sea and sand here, explore Barrenjoey Head, Sydney’s northernmost seaside point and lots more.
What makes Palm Beach, a narrow peninsular, so spectacular is its unbeatable location. It won nature’s lottery and is surrounded by water on three sides: Pittwater to the west, the Pacific Ocean to the east, and Broken Bay to the north at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River, which meanders inland to historic Windsor.
After having a look around Palm Beach and stopping for a stretch and photos, they hoped back on the Harley and headed south. Pat rode past the beautiful beaches along the coast. However, time was nearly up so he headed back to Narrabeen and dropped Mary off at her home. In conclusion, the 70th birthday Harley tour was a huge success.
The Harley ride was a surprise for my mum for her 70th bday.
She was like a little kid waving her arms when she realised Pat was taking her on a ride.
Mum had an absolutely great time and said Pat was a great driver. She’s done a Harley ride at for 35, 50 and 70th birthdays. She was full of adrenaline and smiling all afternoon at her party.
Here is a great pic I got and perfect timing of the hot rod driving behind her.
Thanks again to Pat.
