The Christmas gift trike tour was a present a few years ago. Our Gift Vouchers are valid for 3 years so there is plenty of time to use them.
We had an absolute blast! Brian was so lovely and knowledgeable, the ride honestly exceeded our expectations!
Thank you so much for sending the photos through. We’re more than happy for you to post any of them!
Absolutely, I’ll be sure to leave a review! And will be recommending to our friends and family too!!
Brian picked our passengers up from their home in Belmore. Belmore is 11kms south west of Sydney’s CBD. He then rode through the inner west and over the fabulous ANZAC Bridge.
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.
Then it was on the flyover to the most iconic of bridges:
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Riding over the Sydney Harbour Bridge is always impressive. We always tell our passenger to look up and enjoy the unique view. The more than 6,000,000 rivets are so interesting and the arch is so iconic. This bridge is the eighth longest spanning-arch bridge in the world and the tallest steel arch bridge, measuring 134 m (440 ft) from top to water level. It was also the world’s widest long-span bridge, at 48.8 m (160 ft) wide, until construction of the new Port Mann Bridge in Vancouver was completed in 2012.
This led to Kirribilli so they rode 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. A perfect place to stop for photos. So far, the Christmas gift trike tour was a lot of fun and they have already seen so much.
The Kirribilli Loop
They rode under the north side of the bridge and continued on their tour. The underside of the northern end of the SHB – Sydney Harbour Bridge – is very interesting. The Kirribilli Loop was finished by riding past Luna Park and the North Sydney Olympic Pool.
Blues Point Reserve
Continuing on, they rode on through Milsons Point, did a left hand turn and rode up a few streets. This lead to Blues Point Reserve. The views over Blues Bay towards the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the CBD are just stunning. All the more stunning because of the lovely weather. Another perfect place for photos.
However, the hour was almost up, so Brian rode back over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and dropped them off at The Rocks. Here they could have some lunch, check out the markets and have a leisurely afternoon.
In conclusion, the Christmas gift trike tour was a big success. One of the best Christmas presents ever! Feel the Freedom!
