Road

Mount Gibraltar Hill Climb

Used as part of the road championships, Mount Gibraltar is a challenging Cat 2 Climb which is both challenging & scenic

Greenhills

Greenhills goes by many names (some less encouraging than others) & represents all that the Highlands has to offer in terms of challenging courses with very little in the way of flat terrain. Comes in both Summer (1 lap) & Winter (2 laps) versions & is often used as part of the Southern Division Interclub series of races.

Hanging Rock

Since being changed in the Summer of 2015, the Hanging Rock course has transformed to a course which has a Classics Finish feel with the final climb to the line favouring those that like a solid climbing sprint

Wombeyan Caves Road

Coming in two flavours (Summer & Winter), Wombeyan Caves road features the same starting climb as that of Greenhills then extended sections of rolling road featuring as much Highlands wind as possible.

Bundanoon

Bundanoon is frequently used as the final race in the Southern Division Interclub series & follows the Highland Way from Bundanoon to Tallong & back.

Canyonleigh

Another Winter course, Canyonleigh is a challenging rolling road with short punchy climbs. Almost always used as part of the Road Racing Championships it demands attention & the ability to maintain a high amount of momentum for extended periods
