Johnny rang us to organise a surprise 60 trike transfer. It’s not every day your wife turns 60, so you do want to make it a good one!! Sure, we are great at keeping surprises, love them! After organising the route and drop off point, it was changed. We don’t mind changes being made to any itinerary.
Our trike rider Craig, met the couple at their home in Ryde. Ros got a huge surprise but it was a good one and you should have seen the look on her face. You can see in the photo below, Ros loved it.
Firstly, they rode across the Gladesville Bridge. This bridge is on the main arterial thoroughfare of Victoria Road. They travelled along for a short on Victoria Road 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.
Over the wonderful ANZAC Bridge was next. Our favourite bridge is probably the ANZAC Bridge. We think it is incredible, a work of art and design. 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 03 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 they rode around the back of Pyrmont past Jones Bay Wharf and the Star Casino. It’s an interesting area.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Riding over the Sydney Harbour Bridge is always fun. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. So far, the surprise 60 trike transfer was one of the funnest experiences they had ever been on.
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. A perfect place to stop for photos.
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.
They continued riding on through the back streets of Neutral Bay and Mosman. However, the 2 hours was up so Craig headed to the drop off point. Bathers Pavilion at Balmoral was where the party was being held. In conclusion, the surprise 60 trike transfer was a huge success and really added an element of celebration to such an important milestone.
