Who are Switchbacks and what you can expect
Welcome to Switchbacks Bubion Enduro: Sierra Nevada mountain biking at its best for 22 years and counting. Our all-natural singletrack ranges from flowing to technical and provides an unbeatable MTB holiday experience for every rider.
Are you looking for the perfect mountain biking experience? Let ex-pro DH rider Michael Saunders and his expert team guide you down the very best of southern Spain’s singletrack, with free skills tuition provided to bring your entire team up to speed.
We are located in Bubion near the heart of Sierra Nevada National Park. From 5-hour rides criss-
crossing valleys and peaks to 80km descents from mainland Spain’s highest mountain to the golden beaches of
Granada Province, the area has an endless supply of singletrack: fast-rolling descents and rocky, technical riding,
with all routes tailored to your needs to ensure not only that you experience the best MTBing of your life but that
you go home a better, more confident rider as well. There is simply no better place to ride anywhere in Europe –
just ask the innumerable Switchbacks regulars who return year after year!
Sierra Nevada mountain biking
Switchbacks holidays are structured around guests’ needs, preferences and priorities. For example, groups of five or
more riders can be provided with their own guide, villa, routes, and vehicle support and can customise the holiday
to all guests’ riding levels and choice of tracks. But smaller groups will also find their every need catered to, and
single riders are welcome at no extra charge.
New to MTBing? Only been riding a few years? Switchback’s free coaching service will provide you with the skills
required to tackle any terrain. A Sierra Nevada mountain biking holiday brings you to the biggest and best MTBing
classroom there is.

WHO ARE SWITCHBACKS
Switchback’s stoic Swedish silent partner, with no fewer than seven languages under her belt and an uncanny knack for navigating the murky byways of Spanish bureaucracy. Both the brains and the beauty of the outfit.
Faithful, animal-loving and legendary driver, bike loader and gofer. After his 16 years with Switchbacks we’re not sure where we´d be without him.
The newest addition to the Switchbacks team. A Malaga local, stupid fast, great tash and fit as f@ck. 2018 will see him competing in the EWS for the first but we bet not the last time. Welcome aboard dude.
