Have an Enduro bike and like DH? Average descending for a long weekend 20,000 – 30,000 metres vertical. Check out the following video link for what you can expect – but no stress, you dont need the skills of these pros to enjoy our trails – far from it. ´Want to ride like these guys…?´

In total we have a selection of 45 Enduro specific tracks on a huge variety of surfaces: forested, sandy, rock gardens to bermed up jumps ranging between 3 and 30 mins in length. All tracks are suitable for Enduro/ AM bikes. We will shuttle you to the top as close as our vans can access, and at the bottom be waiting to take you back up again. Maximum of 7 riders per van – uplifts will be fast and waiting time minimal.

 Climbs are on easy fireroads with the shortest only 15mins in duration.

More than 15 years ago, Switchbacks discovered the secrets of the previously unknown tracks around Malaga and brought them to the world of mountain biking. Back then there were only 5 trails now we have more than 45 Enduro and shuttle specific tracks.

There is a huge variety of trails in Malaga from fixed rock and switchbacks to sand and head sized loose rocks. One day you´ll be riding on tracks similar to Moab and the next day you´ll finish on the beach after a 1000m descent on sand! We have 10 different riding locations each with its own special surface that will test your bike and skills in different ways. With an average winter temperature of 16c – there is no better winter riding experience anywhere, period.

Combine all this with luxury 4 Star Hotel accommodation in the heart of Mijas Pueblo, a beautiful ´pueblo blanco´ in the foothills of the Costa del Sol. All you can eat hot and cold buffet breakfast included, secure bike storage, workshop and only a 20min drive from Malaga airport – the perfect home away form home. Also available are single rooms for only 15€ extra per night.
