Welby, just out of Mittagong has a great little cross country circuit that's fun to ride at cruisy speeds and is awesome at warp speed. With a mix of clay and sandy soil with small loose rocks there's little punchy technical climbs, drifty singletrack corners and slick rock "choose your own line" sections.
At about 6 km long you'll want to spend a few laps to ride the lines and try and clear all the up and down technical sections. The Southern Highlands Cycle Club holds the occasional race at Welby and if you're in the area it's a great way to spend a few hours.

The trail is flat to begin with a series of fast, swoopy corners to get the legs and handling skills warmed up, but the trail becomes gradually more technical, with rocky slabs, short grunty climbs and a couple of fun downhills! All the scary bits are roll-able or if you have a need to test your suspension, there’s a few air-time opportunities.
At only 6km in length, it’s worth heading straight out for a second lap so you can nail those sections that defeated you or to relive the fun bits!
