trike 3 Bridges tour

The trike 3 Bridges tour is one of our most popular tours. Chris and John thought it sounded like fun so they booked it. It was fun!

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Our trike rider Craig, picked them up from Circular Quay. Their first part of the adventure was riding over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is so much fun looking at the structure, the rivets and the arch without any constrictions, except perhaps the helmet. Make sure you look up as you ride across the bridge, the wonderful arches and the view of the bridge is amazing without anything blocking it.

The Kirribilli Loop

The next interesting part of the ride was the Kirribilli Loop. It travels past Jeffrey Street Wharf and behind it is a wonderful view across Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Opera House. After that, they rode under the northern section of the Sydney Harbour Bridge so they could look up and see the underneath.

They finished the loop by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. Next, they continued on into the lower north shore suburbs of North Sydney and Wollstonecraft. Continuing on, they rode along the lovely River Road into Lane Cove. Next was the first bridge but not one of the main three.

Fig Tree Bridge and the Gladesville Bridge

It is the Fig Tree Bridge which opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. They continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge which spans Tarban Creek. After that, they arrived at the second of the main 3 Bridges, the Gladesville Bridge. It has wonderful views along Parramatta River towards the Harbour Bridge and the city.

The Bay Run

Importantly, 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, they saw the lovely water views which is part of the Parramatta River. In addition, they stopped for photos at Rodd Point so they could have a proper look at part of the 7 km long Bay Run. It is such a popular walk/run/bicycle path, people come from all over Sydney.

ANZAC Bridge

Moreover, riding onto the incredible ANZAC Bridge is a wonderful feeling. You really will experience a feeling of freedom. It is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view. After that, they rode into the city before being dropped back at Circular Quay. Hopefully you can see why the trike 3 Bridges tour is one of our most popular tours. It is a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
