Jeanine organised the Harley and trike birthday transfer for her partner. Birthday’s are worth celebrating and this one was in style!
Our trike rider Brian and Harley rider Alan, picked the four passengers up from home in the inner west. They travelled through the city to:
Mrs Macquarie’s Point
Riding past the Royal Botanical Gardens to Mrs Macquarie’s Point was next. It has beautiful views looking west towards the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. They ride past Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is an exposed sandstone rock cut into the shape of a bench, on a peninsula in Sydney Harbour. It was hand carved by convicts in 1810, for Elizabeth Macquarie, the wife of Major-General Lachlan Macquarie, Governor of NSW. The Art Gallery of NSW is also on this road and is just beautiful to ride past.
Next, they rode through the inner eastern suburb of Woolloomoolloo and past the famous Harry Cafe De Wheels. Harry’s Café de Wheels has been serving customers for over 80 years. They make delicious pies, hotdogs and more. Continuing on, they rode through the infamous Kings Cross, though it has calmed down a lot since it’s heyday – home of the famous and huge Coca Cola sign. Kings Cross is also home to nightclubs and ladies of the night though it is not nearly as raunchy as it was in the 1970s (apparently). So far, the Harley and trike birthday transfer was a lot of fun.
After there, they headed west through the posh suburbs of the eastern suburbs of Sydney, including the Bays: Rose Bay, Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay. North Bondi is worth a stop with its lovely views over Bondi and Bondi Beach.
However, the hour was up so they rode to the famous Bondi Beach. The world famous tower of the Bondi Lifeguards of the Bondi Rescue TV series is here. When in Sydney the famous Bondi Beach is one of the places you should visit. The beach is seriously nice (but not our favourite) and we usually stop near the lifeguard station, made famous by the TV series “Bondi Rescue”. For instance, Bondi Beach is one of the most visited tourist sites in Australia. Bondi Beach is recorded by the Australian Museum that Bondi means place where a fight using boondi sticks (nullas nullas or fighting sticks) took place.
Our riders dropped the passengers at Bondi to have some dinner. There are heaps of cafes and restaurants in Bondi and along the beach promenade. In conclusion, the Harley and trike birthday transfer was a success – you can see by the smiles. What a way to celebrate a birthday!
