We love it! Our passengers are Harley riders from Perth, WA. They wanted to do something different so booked the 3Bridges trike tour. As Trevor (the headman of Troll Tours) says, it is hard to sit on the back of a trike if you are a Harley rider!
3Bridges trike tour
The passengers decided the three-bridges was an interesting tour to experience. It sure was! It takes our passengers into the lower north shore suburbs and many of the inner west suburbs of Sydney.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Our trike rider Craig picked them up from their accommodation, in the CBD. Firstly, they rode over the wonderful Sydney Harbour Bridge. As we have said in many posts – look up! The arches and the rivets are worth looking at.
Next, they stopped at Jeffrey St Wharf for photos. This is in Kirribilli – one of the city’s most established and affluent neighbourhoods, (apparently). It is located three kilometres north of the Sydney CBD – over the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
After that, they did the Kirribilli Loop – as suggested before – look up! You will see the underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge.
They finished the loop by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool. They continued on into the lower north shore suburbs of North Sydney and Wollstonecraft. 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 – an extra!
The Fig Tree Bridge opened in 1963 and spans the Lane Cove River. They continued on and crossed the second of the bridges Tarban Creek Bridge. This spans Tarban Creek. Then they rode onto the second 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. They followed the shoreline of Iron Cove which is part of the Parramatta River. They stopped for photos at Rodd Point so they could have a proper look at part of the 7 km long Bay Run.
Continuing on the ride, the incredible ANZAC Bridge was next. It is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view. However, time was up so they rode into the city before being dropped back at Circular Quay.
Our passengers thought the 3Bridges trike tour was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about. Some locals that is, not all! The 3Bridges trike tour was a total success!
