more flow, more fun

We have all been out on the trails and having the ride of our lives when all of a sudden a tight switchback corner arrives to spoil our day. This little corner just shatters our confidence and with frustration we stop the bike, hope off and walk around. The whole time we say to ourselves “next time i won’t hesitate, next time i wont stop, next time i won’t……..”

The EPIC switchback training weekend is there to build up your confidence and technique step by step so there won’t be a next time.

The course is lead by experienced Swiss Cycling instructors that have the knowledge and understanding of what it takes to ride the perfect switchback.

The price is for the course only. Accommodation is not included. Please contact EPIC for suggestions.


Starting out slow on flat terrain we combine the correct movements with training cones until we are ready to move to the next step. Practise makes perfect and when ready we head to the skills centre which provides us with plenty of options to put our new skills to the test.
