Bio

Our Bio

quick look

We aspire to introduce and promote mountain biking as a healthy, competitive sport among professional and amateur athletes and at the same time compel students and the general public to take up mountain biking, as it opens the doors to an outdoor lifestyle.

We welcome all mountain biking enthusiasts, from professionals, amateur racers to someone who just wants to have some fun. We encourage them to bring their families along so that they aren’t the only one having all the fun. Other than that, we target school and college students, the ex-pat community, and corporate sectors.

EVENT MANAGEMENT :
We host various races focusing on cross-country and downhill for the moment but, soon plan to do BMX, inter school and corporate races as well.

BIKE SKILLS TRAINING :
We believe that proper training is an absolute necessary for someone to enjoy mountain biking to the fullest and also to ensure rider safety. We develop and conduct specific training for various age groups and skill levels.

TRAIL EXPLORATION :
Since, we're always down for an insane ride and an awesome adventure, Switchback riders are always On The Go to hunt and explore new trails. We also document our trail adventure to share it with the rest of the world!

We are all for mountain biking and anything related to it and it shows once you’ve seen our work!
