Jennifer had organised the trike tour around 3bridges for her kids. Unfortunately they had a late flight change. They were flying into Sydney. Jennifer didn’t tell us so we couldn’t organise a different time for them but Steve, her husband was happy. He got to do the tour!
It was a really hot day in Sydney. Even though it was hot, over 40˚c, it was still fun and we still do rides. Craig picked Steve up at Circular Quay.
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 Steve off, back at Circular Quay. In conclusion, the trike tour around 3bridges was a huge success. You can see by his smile.
“Thank you so much. Steve had a wonderful time.”
