From Melbourne, our passengers are staying in a hotel in Sydney. The concierge rang us. Could we take them on a ride later in the week? Yes, we could. So, we organised the popular 3Bridges trike tour for them.
Iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge
Steve picked Alan and Jennifer up from their hotel in Darling Harbour. Firstly, they rode through the city and over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic.
Next, after riding across the Harbour Bridge was riding past Kirribilli House. Kirribilli House is the secondary official residence of the Prime Minister of Australia.
After that, 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. 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.
Continuing 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, but, because it is the school holidays the traffic is a lot better than usual. So, Steve was able to take them to Mrs Macquarie’s Point, Woolloomooloo & the X (Kings Cross) before returning them to their hotel.
Our passengers thought the popular 3Bridges trike tour was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
