The Swiss passengers trike tour was a spur of the moment decision. They are in Sydney for a few days and wanted to do something different and exciting. We agree, a trike ride is a fun way to explore Sydney.
Our trike rider Craig picked them up from their hotel in Wynyard. Firstly, they rode through the historic Rocks. After that, they rode over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. The first stop was:
After riding across the Harbour Bridge they rode past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia.
Next, 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.
Blues Point Reserve
After there, they rode to Blues Point Reserve. This is another area where the views across Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney Opera House and the CBD are magnificent. Also, there is a lovely view of Luna Park.
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
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. After that, they followed 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. So, Craig rode through Pyrmont and Darling Harbour before dropping them off at their hotel. From here they could continue their exploration of Sydney.
Our Swiss passengers trike tour was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
In conclusion, the Swiss passengers trike tour experience was a huge success!
