Sydney holiday trike ride – Barry + Maureen 17.06.22

On a rare trip away, our passengers organised the Sydney holiday trike ride for a bit of fun. They thought it would be a great way to see the city and sights – it was.

Our trike rider Fred, picked them up from their hotel in the Sydney CBD.

Barangaroo

Firstly, he drove them through the comparatively new development of Barangaroo. A spectacular transformation from a disused container terminal on the edge of Sydney’s CBD into a spectacular 22-hectare waterfront precinct. This leads into the Rocks which is the birthplace of modern Sydney. With the arrival of European settlers in 1788, it was here that the convicts first set up house and shop.

Mrs Macquarie’s Point

Then it was back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, past the Allen C Lewis Fountain, past the Royal Botanical Gardens to Mrs Macquarie’s Point. It has beautiful views looking west towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. They ride past Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is an exposed sandstone rock cut into the shape of a bench, on a peninsula in Sydney Harbour. It was hand carved by convicts in 1810, for Elizabeth Macquarie, the wife of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of NSW.

Then they rode back along Mrs Macquaries Road and past the wonderful Art Gallery of NSW. The Art Gallery of New South Wales, was founded as the New South Wales Academy of Art in 1872. It was also known as the National Art Gallery of New South Wales between 1883 and 1958.

Eastern suburbs

Next, they rode through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo and past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more. Continuing on, they rode through the infamous Kings Cross, though it has calmed down a lot since it’s heyday – home of the famous and huge Coca Cola sign. Kings Cross is also home to nightclubs and ladies of the night though it is not nearly as raunchy as it was in the 1970s (apparently). After there, they headed west through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay.

Bondi Beach

Further north they came to the famous Bondi Beach. Here they stopped for photos and why not with this view! Just to the left of this photo is the the world famous tower of the Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series. They stopped at the famous Bondi Beach for photos, 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. Bondi Beach is recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place. So far, and the whole way, Jacqueline’s first time Harley experience was a lot of fun.

Bronte Beach and Tamarama Beach

Next, they rode east to Bronte Beach and then north to the tiny but picturesque Tamarama Beach. It’s lovely to look out to the South Pacific Ocean from any of the beaches. So far, the Sydney holiday trike ride was fun and informative

Centennial Park

Riding through the huge Centennial Park is a lovely experience. 120 fields and venues, and 35+ different sports played in the Centennial Parklands. It is the largest community sports precinct in Australia! The history is also interesting: “Originally a swamp and then set aside as land for the water source for Sydney. Centennial Park was reconstructed as a public park and opened in 1888. Sir Henry Parkes’ vision was to create a ‘People’s Park’ in which the citizens of Sydney could ‘take in the air’ away from the Sydney town centre.”

Oxford Street

There was enough time to ride down the famous Oxford Street. The western section of Oxford Street, which runs through the suburb of Darlinghurst, is widely recognised as Sydney’s main gay district and Oxford Street is closed to traffic once a year in early March for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

However the 1.5 hours was almost up, so Fred dropped them off in the city. In conclusion, the Sydney holiday trike ride was a great experience.

Testimonial on FB

Maureen Bartle recommends Troll Tours: “Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Eastern Beaches with Fred. He took us to all the top spots and was very informative. Great trip.”

Dine & Discover Harley tour – Michele 24.06.22

As a last minute decision, Michele decided to organise the Dine & Discover Harley tour. The NSW Government initiative takes $25 off if you do an experience or eat out using a Dine & Discover voucher. However, the offer finishes on 30 June 2022 so they voucher(s) need to be redeemed soon.

Our Harley rider Phil, picked Michele up from Circular Quay railway station.

However, the 1.5 hour tour was almost up so Phil rode Michele back to the railway station. In conclusion, the Dine & Discover Harley tour was a big success. She saw many places she had never seen before or been to, even as a Sydneyite.

Centennial Park disability rides – Andrew + Wayne 14.06.2022

The Centennial Park disability rides were a Christmas present for our passengers. They were so looking forward to it that when they day came they were so excited they could hardly wait.

Our trike rider Fred met them at a prearranged place in Centennial Park. They couldn’t go together because they each needed support, so they took turns with a carer.

The maximum speed limit in the park is 30km per hour so Fred rode outside the park as well. Just to give them a feel of being in the real world.

However, the hour was up so Fred dropped the last passenger back at the bus. In conclusion, the Centennial Park disability rides was a huge success and they’d love to do it again.

Centennial Park history

It was originally a swamp and then set aside as land for the water source for Sydney. Centennial Park was reconstructed as a public park and opened in 1888. Sir Henry Parkes’ vision was to create a ‘People’s Park’ in which the citizens of Sydney could ‘take in the air’ away from the Sydney town centre.

In it’s 130th year (2018), Centennial Park – the ‘People’s Park – has been honoured with an Australian National Heritage Listing. This elevates the Park to the status of other National Heritage places such as Bondi Beach, the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Australian War Memorial.

‘Great Inaugural Procession’

Centennial Park has outstanding heritage value to the nation. It’s the site chosen for one of the defining events in Australia’s history: the inauguration of the Commonwealth of Australia.

The inauguration event held at Centennial Park on 1 January 1901 was a key moment in Australia’s progression to a unified Commonwealth. The six colonies of South Australia, Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland were brought together as one.

These actions marked the creation of a new democracy. From this moment, on 1 January 1901, the Commonwealth of Australia became a self-governing nation.

The surprise 18th birthday ride on the Harleys, was a huge success. Sydney Australia.

surprise 18th birthday ride – Hila + Sinead 14.06.22

The Harley surprise 18th birthday ride was organised by Hila for her daughter Sinead. Turning 18 is a milestone and needs to be celebrated. After some organising, a 3 hour route was decided on with a stop for Sinead’s first legal drink.

La Perouse

Our Harley riders Phil and David, picked them up from their home in the Shire, south of Sydney. Firstly, they rode to La Perouse for a look across Botany Bay back towards the Shire. The name commemorates French navigator Jean-Francois de Galaup, Comte de La Perouse, whose two ships entered Botany Bay and anchored on the northern side of the Bay shortly after the arrival of the First Fleet in January 1788.

Maroubra Beach + Coogee Bay

Next they rode past Maroubra Beach and Coogee bay to Bondi Icebergs.

Bondi Beach and Bondi Icebergs

Here they stopped for photos and for Sinead’s first legal drink. After their drink, they returned to the Harleys and the next part of the ride. There was some concern as the Harbour Tunnel had been closed, so the route took them down Oxford Street, right onto College Street another right on Macquarie St, all at the speed limit of 40 kph. A final right turn and onto the Cahill Expressway. So far, the surprise 18th birthday ride was a lot of fun and a great experience.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

This leads to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passenger to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. It’s nicknamed ‘The Coathanger’ because of its arch-based design. It is the largest steel arch bridge in the world.

Kirribilli

Next, 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.

However, the 3 hours was almost up so they rode back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge, through the CBD and back to the Shire, the southern suburbs of Sydney. In conclusion, the surprise 18th birthday ride was a huge success:

TripAdvisor review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

3 Hour Tour

Mother – Daughter duo for a surprise 18th birthday celebration and it was the most amazing experience. We went on a 3 hour Harley Davidson tour through all the Eastern beaches and the city. We were guided by Phil + David and they made the experience even better.

Shout out to Katrina for arranging everything behind the scenes too. We also got to stop at Bondi Icebergs for a drink on the way. We would highly recommend anyone of ALL ages. Now we want to buy a Harley ourselves 😉

Thank you Troll Tours

Eastern Panorama tour gift – Annette + Glen 13.06.22

The Eastern Panorama tour gift was a great present, a well thought out one. It could have been 2 Harleys or 1 trike but the trike was the best option for what they wanted.

Our trike rider Brian picked them up from home in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

North Bondi and Brighton Lookout.

Firstly, they rode east to North Bondi. There are a couple of lookouts at the North Bondi headland. They all offer beautiful views of Bondi Beach and out to the Tasman Sea, part of the South Pacific Ocean. Brian stopped there for a few photos and so they could admire the view.

Bondi Beach

From North Bondi they rode to the famous Bondi Beach. They stopped here for photos, 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. Bondi Beach is recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place. So far, the Eastern Panorama tour gift was fun and special.

Tamarama, Bronte and Clovelly

Further south are, along more beautiful, though possibly less well known, more beaches. The suburb of Tamarama has a small ocean beach about 1 kilometre south of Bondi Beach and a couple of hundred metres north of Bronte Beach. It is an extremely narrow beach and deceptive for its size. Tamarama Beach is often referred to as Glamarama (or Glamourama), owing to the alleged abundance of glamorous people who sunbathe (often topless), on what must be one of the smallest strips of sand in the state (Wikipedia). So far, the trike tour for surprise birthday is a huge success.

Bronte Beach sits on Nelson Bay, surrounded by Bronte Park. Bronte offers scenic cliff-top walking paths south to Coogee via the Waverley Cemetery and north to Tamarama and Bondi Beach. Clovelly Beach is a small and tranquil beach located at the end of a narrow bay. All these beaches are beautiful and great places to swim.

Coogee

Next is Coogee Beach where they stopped for a coffee and a stretch. Another beautiful beach and slightly more famous than the previous beaches, due to a well know hotel in Coogee. The name Coogee is said to be taken from a local Aboriginal word koojah which means “smelly place”. Another version is koo-chai or koo-jah, both of which mean “the smell of the seaweed drying” in the Bidigal language, or “stinking seaweed”, a reference to the smell of decaying kelp washed up on the beach. Coogee was gazetted as a village in 1838. The first school was built in 1863, and the building was converted into the Coogee Bay Hotel in 1873 (Wikipedia).

Riding past Coogee Beach to Rosslyn Flats is interesting. However, the 1.5 hours was almost up, so Brian headed north and through

Centennial Park

Riding through the huge Centennial Park is a lovely experience. 120 fields and venues, and 35+ different sports played in the Centennial Parklands. It is the largest community sports precinct in Australia! The history is also interesting: “Originally a swamp and then set aside as land for the water source for Sydney. Centennial Park was reconstructed as a public park and opened in 1888. Sir Henry Parkes’ vision was to create a ‘People’s Park’ in which the citizens of Sydney could ‘take in the air’ away from the Sydney town centre.”

Finally, after such a great Eastern Panorama tour gift, Brian dropped them home.

Down Syndrome birthday gift – Greg + Sarah 11.06.22

The Down Syndrome birthday gift was given to Greg by his Mum, for his 30th birthday. His carer Sarah went a long for the ride as well.

They live in the outer Sydney area, so they caught the train into Sydney CBD. Our trike rider Brian met them at Circular Quay Railway Station.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Firstly, they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passenger to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. It’s nicknamed ‘The Coathanger’ because of its arch-based design. It is the largest steel arch bridge in the world.

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 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, Tarban Creek Bridge, Gladesville Bridge

The Fig Tree Bridge opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. After that bridge, they continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge. This spans Tarban Creek, likewise, it has nice views east to the Harbour Bridge. Then they got to bridge #2 of the main 3 Bridges, the Gladesville Bridge. 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. 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. So far, the Down Syndrome birthday gift was a great experience.

ANZAC Bridge

Our favourite bridge is the ANZAC Bridge. We think it is incredible, a work of art and design. It is main bridge #3. 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.

However, the hour was up so Brian dropped them back at Circular Quay. In conclusion, the Down Syndrome birthday gift was the best present ever. What a way to celebrate his 30th birthday!

The Harley moll bucket list was a big tick! Sydney Australia.

Harley moll bucket list – Ben + Bronwyn 11.06.22

Bronwyn has a Harley moll bucket list 😊 and we ticked it off today. Or rather, her husband did it for her.

Our Harley riders Phil and Pat picked the passengers up from home in the inner west.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

surprise 85th birthday gift – Meryl + Robin 11.06.22

The surprise 85th birthday gift of a trike tour, was organised by Meryl for her husband Robin. They both used to rider bikes back in the day, but haven’t been on one for a long time. She decided on a trike as opposed to 2 Harleys because she wasn’t sure they’d be able to lift their legs over the Harleys. Meryl thought she’d surprise Robin and she sure did. Today they felt young again.

Spit Bridge

Our trike rider Syl, met them in the car park near the Spit Bridge. Firstly, they crossed the Spit Bridge which is always fun. With great views of Middle Harbour and expensive boats. The Spit Bridge is a steel and concrete girder bridge with a bascule lift span across the Middle Harbour.

Manly, Freshwater, Curl Curl, Dee Why etc

They rode up past Queenscliff, which is really northern Manly. Then they rode past Freshwater,  Curl Curl, Dee Why and Long Reef. All such beautiful beaches.

Narrabeen Lagoon

They rode via Narrabeen Lagoon (also referred to as Narrabeen Lake) is Sydney’s Northern Beaches largest estuary system located just behind the world famous surfing beach at Narrabeen. It is a haven for wildlife. So far, the surprise 85th birthday gift was a lot of fun. Already they had seen so many of the beautiful places many visitors or locals to Sydney don’t get to see.

“Home and Away”

Then the tour went via Bilgola Plateau, Clareville, Careel Bay and Avalon before reaching Whale Beach. Between Whale Beach and Palm Beach is the Palm Beach Bible Garden. It has spectacular views over Palm Beach. After a stop for coffee, a stretch and a look at the view, they headed to Palm Beach. It is the home of the long running TV series “Home and Away”. However, the 3 hour tour was just over halfway done, so Syl turned around and they headed back to the Spit Bridge and their car.

Pittwater

Next, they turned right and headed along Mona Vale Road, Terry Hills. This meant they would have new scenery and new roads to ride on. They did a big loop.

Wakehurst Parkway

This joins the Wakehurst Parkway. We love the Wakehurst Parkway because the legal speed is faster than most Sydney limits.  

Oxford Falls

After riding along a part of it, they rode up the Parkway to Oxford Falls. The Oxford Falls are two waterfalls on Middle Creek, which flows north to meet Oxford Creek. Meandering Creek flows into Middle Creek. Garigal National Park borders the suburb, to the north. Then it was through the norther suburbs of Frenchs Forest and Seaforth to their car on the south side of the Spit Bridge.

In conclusion, the surprise 85th birthday gift was a huge surprise and a great one. It was also a lot of fun and very memorable.

Harley tour over 3 bridges – Stephanie 05.06.22

Stephanie is legally blind but can still experience and enjoy our tours. She decided to do a Harley tour over 3 bridges. While there are great views on this tour, Stephanie could still feel the breeze, hear the noises and feel the vibrations of the Harley. Our Harley rider Phil, met her at Central Station and off they went.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Firstly, they rode over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passenger to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.

The photo is of Phil the Harley rider because Stephanie didn’t want any photos of her put on the website or social media. We respect everyone’s wishes.
