Our passenger’s son organised the 3 Bridges birthday tour as a belated birthday celebration. Craig picked them up from Circular Quay, it is a central and easy place to pick up and drop off.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly they rode over the first of the 3 Bridges. The famous and iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. As we keep telling everyone – look up! Without a roof blocking your view, you will really be able to appreciate the arches.
After that, they stopped at Kirribilli on the north side of the Harbour Bridge. It has wonderful views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD. A view we never tire of. In addition, it also has an up-close view of the side and underneath of the bridge.
They continued 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
It is the Fig Tree Bridge which 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. 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.
They continued on riding onto the incredible ANZAC Bridge – bridge #3. Similarly, it is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view. Riding into the city is always interesting, however, time was up. Craig dropped the passengers back at Circular Quay. Our passengers thought the 3 Bridges Harley ride was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
In conclusion, the 3 Bridges birthday tour was a huge success, another “best birthday present ever”. ??
Our passengers wrote to us the next day: “We had an awesome experience with Troll Tours. Our driver Craig was very informative, had all safety requirements covered. He was very timely and very knowledgeable of the route we drove. We felt very safe on the trike with Craig. An awesome experience and highly recommended.????”
