Our passengers are from India and in Sydney for a holiday. They originally wanted to do the city tour. On New Years Eve and New Years Day, there are many road closures around the city but especially the Sydney Harbour areas. So we all decided the 3 Bridge trike tour was the way to go.
One of our trike riders, Craig, picked them up from their hotel. Unfortunately Sydney is still smokey from all the fires but it is still fun riding on the trike and Harleys.
Famous Sydney Harbour Bridge
Firstly, they rode over the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is an experience and a view, that we never ever tire of. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.
After coming off the Harbour Bridge, we usually stop at Kirribilli or Blues Point. However, due to the fireworks tonight, these areas were closed to traffic. So, 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 – 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. It is also part of the 7 km long Bay Run.
However, time was up so Craig dropped his passengers off at their hotel. In conclusion, the 3 Bridge trike tour was a huge success. You can see by their huge smiles.
