Imagine a day where you start out skiing at 3400ms and finish it riding your mountain bike on the beach some 75kms later...

Take me there

The trails

The trails of Sierra Nevada (Las Alpujarra), are a true mountain bikers dream come reality. Located in the highest mountain range in Spain with views of Morocco to the south beyond the Mediterranean and an endless variety of trails and excellent local food, Las Alpujarra is an undiscovered mtbers paradise. All our trails are on singletrack with some fire road climbs but the majority of the ups are in our Merc Sprinters – of course if you love the climb then we can alter the amount of shuttling we provide. We also provide EMTB hire and holidays plus a selection of batteries for hire. EMBN Video here

We have a fantastic selection of around 40 mountain biking singletrack runs ranging in length from 3 mins right up to 5 hours! The first days mountain biking always starts out on easy fast flowing trails that as the day progresses will get slightly more technical. The rest of the week can be customised to your level of mountain biking.

Sierra Nevada offers a huge variety of different surfaces and conditions. From forest to sand and rock to open fields and even snow at higher altitudes. Many of the trails are 1000s of years old, passing through abandoned villages, orchards and olive groves.

Our trails are coded from blue to black. The majority of days will include all three levels with a steady development to red/black runs as the week progresses. For those worried about the black runs we offer free mountain biking skills tuition where we can show you a few simple techniques that will get even beginners riding the most advanced mountain biking trail conditions by mid-week.

We enjoy a 90% customer return rate come and join us and see what you are missing!

    Hi Michael
    Many thanks for a great short break with you.
    I had 3 full days of riding with you last week and was really sorry to have had to leave.
    The POLE bike I hired from you was perfect , the company was great and the riding was superb, really inspiring me for the season ahead.
    Maybe see you in the summer season some time.
    All the best

    - Mat Boley, Malaga Jan 2024

  • " Coming to the end of an amazing 6 days of riding in the mountains of southern Spain with Switchbacks enduro and downhill bike tour company. Absolutely unforgettable experience and my riding has gone up a whole new level with these guys! Our guide Ruben was an absolute legend! Loads of pointers on how to ride these super steep and technical trails, and no problem too big or small to fix straight away (even swapped out a full brake from his hip bag when my brake hose popped!). Can’t wait to bring my new skills back home! I’m not the best rider by any means but I rode stuff this week I never thought I could. YouTube’s to follow (spoiler alert, the f word is in there). If you fancy a completely epic bike holiday, you should check out these total legends! If you can ride here (and you can), you can ride anywhere. Unbelievable views as well (when I wasn’t fixated on the trail) "

    - Piers from Scotland 21 April 2023

  • " We from #wightmountain MTB just got back from another week with #Switchbacks Bubion. Words speak, but numbers moreso - 6,500ft of climbing and 46,000ft down. Thats more than 14,000 metres vertical descending!? Mt Everest is 8,800ms… In one single week. Thanks to the Switchbacks crew for everything, Hasta la proxima.   "

    - 46,000 ft of descent with Switchbacks Enduro Bubion – in a week, wtf??? Wight Mountain 24th 11 2022

  • " What an awesome week!! After a bit of a break (10 years or so 🤣), we returned to sample more of Bubions unique trails with our always welcoming hosts at Switchbacks. As usual Michael made us instantly feel at home, as we settled in to our perfect little house in the haven that is Bubion, ready for a week of shredding. And the trails didn't disapoint!! Going from perfect 'Spanish flow' to rock gardens and centuries old roman roads whilst testing your skills and being surrounded by breathtaking scenery. We then had a unique opportunity to sample what Malaga had to offer and stay in the polar opposite accommodation that is the fantastic 4 star hotel that Switchbacks use in the winter months. The trails are also quite different with some challenging rocky trails, a very unique trail that follows a huge Dam and some sweet forest single track which was a dream to ride!!! Anyway just wanted to say a huge thanks again to Michael, Ruben and the crew for making our stay one to remember. See u again real soon, the isle if wight crew!!! "

    - D Masterton Wight Mountain MTB 22nd 10th 2022

  • " Just a quick email to say thanks for a great trip. Wasn’t sure what to expect but can only heap praise on it. I’ll definitely be back. Ruben is an asset to the company. Not only a great guide and a nice guy but as the week went on also showed what a great rider he is and his knowledge of the trails was great although I didn’t get to ride with him very much because I was always at the back. Luki´s driving of the van was exceptional too. If you want to get somewhere quickly that’s the van to be in. Hotel was also great. So all in all great. "

    - A Gomm 12th Dec 2021

  • " Just got back from another incredible long weekend of riding in Bubion. My first trip to Switchbacks was back in 2004 and have been back almost every year. There was 9 of us this trip and over a 3.5 day period we covered no less than 127.5km of riding, 1,969m climbing and 10,522m of descending.  Everest is 8,849ms… Can´t wait till next year. Thanks again to the Switchbacks Crew. "

    - J Ingham, 17th Oct 2021

  • " Hi Michael, After a fairly manic return to UK I finally have time to reflect and wanted to thank you for the fantastic stay you organised for the ‘Monday night bikers’. You really did a fantastic job. The tuition and pre booking of lifts and restaurants was really appreciated. We all thought you where a great host and your advice about planning the trip was all spot on. Many thanks again to you and rest of the team. "

    - Conrad M

  • " What an amazing experience we have all had in Bubion, with Michael at Switchbacks!! Seventeen of us were a lot to keep happy and Michael ensured that everything ran smoothly for us, from collecting at the airport, supplying fabulous accommodation in the most charming villas,with plenty of space to spread out, to organising our final evening in the most exquisite little restaurant in Bubion. The trails are pretty technical and rocky with slippery slate to contend with, but certainly a challenge and with the help of Michael and Reuben you feel like you could tackle anything! A typical day started for us at 9.30 (well, we tried for 9.30).. splitting the groups into abilities and suitable trails.. we arranged packed lunches from the little cafe beside the car park, but nearly always managed to return for a cold drink and some tapas around 2pm. Those who wanted, headed off again for some more adrenalin boosting trails, finishing up by 5pm.. just time for quick shower and change ready for a night out in Bubion. Michael goes over and above the duties of the perfect host and I highly recommend the mountain biking experience with him. We are now planning a return visit.🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️ "

    - Caroline Crozet

  • " Had the time of my life, lots of training tips from Michael to put into practice and improve on to show the team next year when I return for more exiting trails. Loved everything! Thanks for a fab time Michael "

    - Angela Smith

  • " Top week. Epic trails, epic banter and epic drinking. Already booked return. Cheers guys "

    - Scott Ramsay

  • " Absolutely and totally without hesitation I’d recommend Mike and the Switchbacks team! Whether you’re looking to recharge your soul or train during the off season this is the place to do it!!! "

    - Andy McCoy

  • " Just come back from 5 days riding with Switchbacks. Amazing experience (tired legs now though). Tricky trails to start with but with coaching from Michael and Ruben I was soon nailing the 'switchbacks' with confidence. Bubion is a perfect location to relax and get the basics like beer, tasty tapas and meals when not riding. Also rode with some great people. Cannot wait to get out on my local trail and use my new skills ;-) "

    - James England

  • " Just returned from a fabulous week in Bubión with Switchbacks hosted by the amazing Michael and his team. The trails with Michael’s tuition and guiding were varied and as challenging as you want - catering for a very mixed fitness/ ability/ age group. Mostly uplift with a bit of climbing to suit ability. The village and countryside were beautiful with stunning views and scenery, and excellent choice of restaurants and bars serving lovely cheap food and tapas with your cool beer! Accommodation in lovely village houses with kitchen, living room and large balcony/ terrace. We never even closed our door - just had a curtain across it!! Bike hire and repair shop, supermarket and cash machine all in the village. Michael thank you so much - we will be back, and also to Malaga in the winter! See you soon!! "

    - David Brown

  • " What an incredible experience - definitely once in a lifetime. Will be back. "

    - Liam E.

    - Chris D

  • " Awesome trails. Epic days. Good vides. What's not to like. "

    - L. Fraser

  • " Just got home this morning at 03:00 after 7 days with Switchbacks. From the moment we got picked up to the moment we got dropped off Mike and Luki and Ruben try their best to make it a holiday to remember, and it was, the riding was fantastic the trails are epic and the knowledge of Mike on the trails and mountain biking generally was great. Ruben was one of the fittest guy I have met. The food was great, accommodation was great. Everything was bang on. "

    - Maurice P.

  • " Top week in the hills, some of the best Enduro Riding with the odd 10 minute climb thrown in. Free tapas, cheap beer, as many eggs as you can eat, the most laid back van driver in Spain, the super fast guide Ruben and a crazy Canadian. If you fancy an Enduro Adventure this is the place to go. "

    - Conrad S.

  • " Just back from a fantastic week in Bubion with Mike and the team. Proper Mtb adventure every day. The area is stunning, trails fast and technical and tapas and beer awesome. Thanks for a brilliant week "

    - Peter L.

  • " Two Swiss girls at Switchbacks: We had amazing 8 days here! Meeting nice people and ride together gives this place a feeling like home. We highly recommend it also for girls "

    - Fabienne G.

  • " If you want to fizz out all week over an insane amount of beautifully sculpted flowing and technical trails and gorge on good food with great company then get on and head over to bloody good! Thanks for organising such an amazing week of riding, so many good times, I'l be back for sure! "

    - H van Dorssen

  • " Possibly the best riding week of my life! Michael is one very special dude, he ensures everyone has an epic time no matter what your level of riding is. I really can't rate him and his business high enough. If you're looking for a week/ weekend away this winter, GET TO SWITCHBACKS! Cheers Michael, Luki and the team for a MEGA week! See you soon "

    - B. Moore

  • " I cannot recommend this place enough! Just back after a week with switchbacks and can confidently say it’s the best riding I have ever done. Michael really caters for riders of all needs and riders leave there a better rider regardless of how good they originally were! His breakdowns of the trails are extremely informative and helpful as well as being very humorous at times. If you live in the wetter part of the world this time of the year I strongly encourage you to at least give it some thought, you will not regret it "

    - B. Wall

  • " The most epic enduro uplift downhill riding with perfect Spain weather. Great mix of technical and fast flowing decents. Can't beat it. "

    - R Mather

  • " Just back from an incredible few days riding with Switchbacks in Malaga. The trails are very special. Our guide Mike was awesome, great with the tips and had me riding stuff I would never have dreamed of. Now back to some good honest North Yorkshire mud and rain. See you next year. "

    - C Crichton

  • " Insanely amazing week in Malaga. Riding skill, speed and confidence has shot up massively thanks to the varied terrain, great coaching and the occasional kick up the arse! Banter was bob-on and made the whole experience even more enjoyable. If you love 2 wheels and a hell of a lot of fun, you need to get here! "

    - C Featherstone

  • " Off to switchbacks again in the morning, this must be about my sixth time while some of my group have been going twice a year this past 8 or 9 years , trails are amazing with new ones to ride every time .such a laid back vibe with Mike and his crew, always willing to change plans if the group want something different.Can't recommend Switchbacks highly enough. "

    - Stevie G

  • " I challenge you to have more fun on a mountain bike. This is without doubt the best experience you will ever have on 2 wheels. Varied terrain, superb location, amazing surroundings and very rewarding days. Michael is an excellent rider and an extremely entertaining, charasmatic and insightful host. Can't wait til the next time! S. Bryne "

    - S. Byrne

  • " Returned again this year with a new bike and was even better than last year. Awesome trails, best guides and can't wait for next years return. Cheers Mike and West.for next years return. Cheers Mike and West. "

    - R. Parker

  • " Not long back from spending a week in Bubion with switchbacks for the first time, and already planning when we can make our next visit. Met some great people, experienced epic trails and got to visit lovely places you wouldn't have seen had you not been with a guide that knows the area as well as Mike. Highlight of the visit was the peak of mountain to beach ride, over 40miles of descending over 4800 metres... do it if you get the chance. Over the course of the week my riding improved greatly and I rode trails I never thought I'd be able to. Thanks and hopefully see you again soon "

    - A Thomson

  • " Visited Switchbacks here a week ago, Awesome trails and Epic scenery, Great guiding by Michael on every trip ! The stay in Bubion city is cosy and chill, cheap food and beer.. Go Now ! ;) "

    - B Jensen

  • " Stayed for a week at Bubion for the second time. The trails there are one of the best in the world. Great guiding and skills tuition. If you want to become a better mountain biker, I highly recommend to go here. "

    - O. Nakari

  • " Me and Mike go a long way back. I first visited Switchbacks in 2007, in Bubion with my cross-country bike. I was there for a long weekend. I cried on the flight home, did not want to leave. The moment I got home, I dropped my luggage in the entrance hall and booked a new trip back, this time for a week. Those two times changed the way I biked. Friends would see me try to always find the rockiest, most technical bit of riding, even if only a meter long, in the middle of vastly flat terrain. From there, life took me on some twists and turns of its own. I kept biking, but locally. Fast forward some seven years and I found myself having started travelling to more and more technical trails, and having taken more and more risks, thinking naively that if you just trust your bike, you are ok, right? Right? After the second bad crash that left me taking painkillers and off the bike for 3 months, I booked myself a technical clinic with Switchbacks in Malaga in both January 2016 and December 2016, to learn more. I turned into a downhiller! My whole life changed, AGAIN. I cannot thank enough Mike and the last couple of times also Westley. I can't wait to visit again, and see which biking dimension you SEND me to this time! "

    - Minna K-M

  • " MTB friends, you need to check out Switchbacks in Southern Spain. Great people, great trails. Really natural, long, guided single track fun. Completely different to anything else I have ridden. Many thanks to Michael, West and Lucky for making it amazing. The only bad part was having to return to real life afterwards. I'm sure we will be back. "

    - S Leak

  • " Absolute belter of a time. Stayed for a week. Handy airport transfer up to the location. The villa is comfy and perfect to prep and come back to after many KM's and the trails and trail knowledge from the guide was first class. Covering the local trails and further afield. Feel stronger and that my riding has definitely improved in the short time that I was there.  Would book again. "

    - H. Davis

  • " Just did a day when over for a wedding nearby and I was very impressed. Technical and fast red routes with nice flowey single track inbetween. Mike was a great guide considering my fitness was not the best and I would decide to go all mountain without notice! Will certainly look to venture back again for a week and check out proper. "

    - S. Stapleton

  • " Whenever you want a great enduro ride in a fantastic and challenging area go to Sierra Nevada Switchbacks and you will enjoy it- thanks to Michael as he is a great guide and teacher We stayed for 3 days only for a private shuttled tour. We ride trails I thought I would never ride but I rocked them all as Michael was a fantastic motivating coach and teacher, to strength my skills and confidence. The trails are not appropriate for beginners - sometimes rocky sometimes loose and sometimes very flowy. Michael spend a lot of his time searching for new trails and to maintain them In a nutshell: definitely a place worth to visit! "

    - C. Holz

  • " Just got back from my third trip out in Bubion ... amazing trip yet again ... so much so I have already booked myself in for another trip this year! Already counting the days ... "

    - T Gowing

  • " Hi Michael,
    Just wanted to say thanks for a very memorable week. We all had an absolutely brilliant time and will definitely be back!
    We've spread the good word around the club we're members of made them very jealous with the photos. Think you'll get a group or two next year from them as well!

    - A Moorby

  • " Just returned from an amazing week with these guys. From start to finish, the experience was top drawer. The digs are excellent in a lovely ancient little town. There are a few places to eat and you can be out all night for about €20 so it's very cheap. The routes are varying in terms of how much effort you need to put in - you'll actually be "loving" the climbs but mostly because they get you to amazing downhills that simply cannot often be reached by road. Very happy to recommend and expect I will return again in the not too distant future. "

    - B Elder

  • " Excellent 4 days of riding. Loved all the different trails. Mike and guys are top lads and will definitely be back. Even got me a lid sorted because I forgot to pack mine� thanks again lads. See u soon "

    - Daryl Hawthorne

  • " Great variety of trails, great guides, great atmosphere and great weather. We spent a week with Switchbacks this March/April (20 degrees in Spain). They have a villa where you can stay for the duration of your trip; it has a large bike workshop where all the bikes are stored and there’s a lovely atmosphere (you are around other riders). There are other facilities - I believe there was a pool at the back of the property - and table tennis tables etc. The villa is in a great location, just a minute’s pedal from a local bike shop (which is super cheap and really fast) and close to restaurants etc. We actually stayed at a hotel nearby and left the bikes at the Villa, because we had family with us who weren’t riding. Each morning we would meet at about 9:15 at the villa and then load up the vans. The vans don’t use those bike trailers, instead putting the bikes inside. This was actually great, because the bikes didn’t get rubbed as much and at the end of the day when you’re really tired you don’t have to lift your bike; the guide will put the bike in the van for you. I use the term ‘guide’ loosely, because all the guys who acted as our guides were more of a fellow rider than the stand-alone guide. Of course, they knew the tracks and were there to give tuition if needed, but they acted as a friend and were all great riding companions. There’s no pressure to be super fast and they can help recommend which trails are best based on how your ride - you’ll be a much better rider by the end of your holiday because the tracks get gradually more challenging as you adapt to the terrain (if you wanted to stay on the easier trails, that would be fine too). I really can’t fault any of the guys who guided us. The tracks were mostly super rocky, but there were also some really smooth and flowy trails. Just tell Michael what you like and you’ll get to ride it! They took two vans each day, often to different locations, so you could pick which tracks to ride (to a certain extent). Because you are with a group, the guides have to cater for everyone’s preferences. This means you won’t ride your favourite trail every day, but that didn’t matter at all: all the tracks were amazing. Lunch is either at a restaurant (we went to a wonderful and very reasonably priced Pizzeria loads of times) or some stuff from the supermarket (some cheese etc). Either way it’s lovely. Each day you get back to the villa at about 5 and may then have to spend a little while checking over or fixing your bike because the terrain is so brutal. To avoid this, bring a load of spares along in your airport bike bag (assuming you’re taking your own bike): loads of tubes, chain, gear cable, brake pads, hanger etc. When you’re riding, put a ton of pressure in your tires (within reason) and maybe bring some spare thicker grips for if your fingers get painful (because of the rough tracks). We found the website a little confusing, but if you keep digging around there's loads of advice on what to bring and how to prepare. A friend of mine had a nasty crash whilst we were there and it was dealt with very professionally. Within seconds all the guides were made aware of the situation and transport to the hospital was organised. The van had a first aid kit in it and the guide was really competent and organised when helping after the crash. I rode on a DH bike, but everyone else was on enduro rigs. Whatever you ride, there’s something there for you to enjoy, including climbing if you would like to. There are a few tracks with some large jumps if that’s what you like, but most are of a more technical style. Regardless, there’s never any traffic on the tracks: it’s just you and the rest of the switchbacks guys. It’s worth noting that the length of the tracks is phenomenal; in just one run I would get more descent than I would in a weekend back in the UK. Long tracks are split into sections so if you wish you can regroup and take a well earned break. A huge thanks to Michael and West for making our week so enjoyable: we’ll be back! "

The weather is invariably good through the winter and the uplifts are brilliant! it has been great meeting so many like minded riders in the shared villa too, making new friends from all over the world has been one of the highlights. The basement workshop is super handy and the staff are lovely. There is an independent vibe here though, you have time to explore, chill and do your own thing which is perfect. Thanks for all the Good times. I have become a better rider because of it "

Irish boys in Spain, tearing up trails, booting booters, doubling doubles, sending senders, blowing minds and freaking out squares. I've been on lots of bike holidays. Switchbacks is epic, unique and boss. Do it. And do it now. "

  • " Excellent few days in Bubion with the Switchbacks team. Greatly improved my riding on a whole mix of fast flowing, steep descending, and technical trails. Thanks again for the riding tips Michael, West, and Andy. "

    - Mark Hestford

  • " Hi Switchbacks - absolutely awesome time. Thank you so much for your time and guiding - absolutely loved every second and will definitely be recommending you to everyone. "

    - Pat Marshall

  • " Just wanted to say we had another awesome week with you in Bubion and have not stopped telling our friends about it for the last few weeks. Consequently, I believe we have persuaded our friends Mark and David to come along next year. Charlie "

    - Bubion Feedback as great as ever.

  • " Quite possibly the best XC/Freeride-lite trails we have ever ridden. One can learn more about riding a bike here in a week, than in several years elsewhere. "

    - Bike Magazine

  • " Superbly tough technical riding, empty trails and mostly downhill with straight forward climbs. I've biked in Les Gets, Morzine, Lake Garda, Kenya and all over the UK. This place beats them all. I'll be back. Just need to convince my poor exhausted bike to come too! :) "

    - John Ingham

  • " Sian and I wanted to say a big thank you for giving us such a fantastic week, we seriously cannot think of one thing that would have improved our time out in Bubion with you. We thought that the organisation, accommodation and most of all yours and Robin’s fantastic attitude and tuition really made our holiday. We’ve both come away eager to try out all the new skills we’ve learnt, despite the fact that the local trails are going to be a little poor in comparison. Thanks again for such a great week, and can’t wait to see you next year for another go! "

    - Matt Perrins

  • " Brilliant riding and at places not for the faint of heart. These guys take novice to semi-advanced riders and send them home as confident, switchback-sliding, altitude-trained legends. "

    - MBUK

  • " The incredible mixture of natural singletrack, rock gardens and flow will keep every rider happy! "

    - Gee Atherton

  • " If you have never been to switchbacks put it on your bucket list , runs are awesome especially the ridiculator , soooooo good , and mike who runs it , makes it special , been twice to benalmadena . Top runs (911 rock gardens , then the gardens are farms fu**ing long ) pizza in the town and beer is €1.50 a pint it all adds up to a trip and a half . And unlike the Alps it's well let's say discreet, like your on a invite only. So go go go . "

    - Thanks for the review Lee

  • " Just a quick line to thank you for a fantastic couple of days with you and your team in Bubion. We are really impressed with the amount of riding we managed to cram into our short break aswel as the laid back "out riding with mates" feel to your operation. Hopefully we'll see you all again one day for more trails and tapas either in Bubion or down in Benalmadena. "
