Nick has taken quite a few trike rides with us. He absolutely loves being on the trike so this time his carer organised the disability trike tour Sydney. Nick has cerebral palsy and the trike is perfect for him. It is safe and stable with seatbelts for each passenger. Nick can sit in the middle behind the rider and hold on.
Craig picked Nick and Annie up from Kirribilli. Firstly, they enjoyed the beautiful view across Sydney Harbour to the Opera House. To the right, there is a wonderful view of the side and underneath of the Harbour Bridge.
Continuing on what we call “the Kirribilli Loop”, they rode under the north end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Similarly, this gives a very different perspective to the bridge from any other. Then they rode past the Luna Park entrance road and past North Sydney Olympic Pool.
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
The Fig Tree Bridge 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, likewise, it has nice views east to the Harbour Bridge. 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. So far, the disability trike tour Sydney is a huge success.
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.
Our favourite bridge is the ANZAC Bridge. We think it is incredible, a work of art and design. It is main bridge #3. Similarly, it is also great to see without a roof over your head inhibiting the view.
Most noteworthy, the stay cable design concept development and final design for the new bridge were carried out by the Roads & Traffic Authority of NSW. Finally, the bridge was opened to traffic on 03 December 1995 as the Glebe Island Bridge.
The bridge was given its current name on Remembrance Day in 1998 to honour the memory of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (known as Anzacs) who served in World War I.
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Riding over the Sydney Harbour Bridge is always fun. We always tell our passengers to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. So far, Marion has relaxed and is loving the 3bridges Harley tour in Sydney.
However, time was nearly up so Craig dropped our passengers back at their vehicle. Annie and Nick thought the disability trike tour Sydney was fantastic, a great way to see parts of the city only the locals know about.
In conclusion, the disability trike tour Sydney was a huge success, Nick had a smile on his face the whole ride.
