The 60th Blue Mountains tour was bought for twins Alessandra and Petra for their birthday. It was a Gift Voucher for each of them. This was last year but because of covid, it has taken them this long to be able to do the trike tour. Their friend Susie wanted to come along for the fun. Most of our trikes take three passengers behind the driver.
The organiser wrote (last year): The vouchers are for my twin cousins – Petra and Alessandra. It is for their 60th birthdays and the message is: “Happy 60th Birthday! They say 60 is the new 40 so a Harley ride seems appropriate for that midlife crisis!” From Bronwyn and Deborah.
Victory Cafe and Govett’s Leap lookout
Our trike rider Max, picked them up from outside the Victory Cafe in Blackheath. Firstly, they rode to Govett’s Leap lookout. It’s a great place to get photos taken and to see the amazing view. Take in the iconic Blue Mountains views from Govetts Leap lookout, including sandstone escarpments, sheer cliff walls, the deep canyons of the Grose Valley, and tall waterfalls. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff.
Next, they rode across the other side of Blackheath and down Megalong Valley Rd. This leads to Shipley Plateau, they wanted to see if they could find some Roos (kangaroos). They did! Part of Blackheath, the Shipley plateau is a small township overlooking Megalong Valley. So far, the 60th Blue Mountains tour was a lot of fun.
Megalong Valley is simply magic. While the view from the Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath is breathtaking, a drive down into the valley itself is an unforgettable experience.
However, the hour was almost up so Max turned around and rode them back to their car outside the cafe. In conclusion, the 60th Blue Mountains tour was one of the best presents ever. A great way to celebrate a milestone.
