George 10.08.19 – Harley north shore ride

Harley north shore ride

George organised the Harley north shore ride. He and his wife are down from Dubbo to do the City to Surf tomorrow. Dubbo is about 400 km north west of Sydney. So, why not do something fun and see the sights at the same time!? George is glad he did.

Sydney Harbour Bridge and Kirribilli

Our Harley rider Phil, picked George up from their hotel in the city. Firstly, he took him over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Kirribilli, on the north side of the Harbour Bridge. There, they stopped for photos and a look at the 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.

Bradleys Head

Continuing on, they headed down to Bradleys Head. Bradleys Head is a headland protruding from the north shore of Sydney Harbour. In addition, on the way down you will ride past Taronga Zoo. For instance, you may see koalas eating their leaves from the tree tops.

Balmoral Beach

After that, they rode past Balmoral Beach. The Promenade along the Esplanade at Balmoral Beach was completed in 1926. It really is a lovely place and very popular with Sydneysiders during summer. It is a very safe place for a swim.

The Spit Bridge

Next, the road led to the Spit Bridge lookout, where this photo was taken. It has beautiful views towards Middle Harbour and back towards Balmoral Beach.

However, the 1.5 hours was up so Phil rode George back to his hotel. In conclusion, the Harley north shore ride was a huge success and George couldn’t keep the smile off his face.

The Lower North Shore refers to the northern suburbs of Sydney adjoining Sydney Harbour. The three bodies of water that surround the Lower North Shore are Lane Cove River on its western border, Sydney Harbour on its south side, and Middle Harbour on its east. The Lower North Shore borders the Upper North Shore when the Lane Cover River and Middle Harbour are at their closest.
