noobie wants to switchback ...
I don't know what I'm doing but I'm not doing it right! That much I know ...
What's the proper approach to a switchback? Brake and shift, inside pedal up. Come in wide. Turn into the apex, lean and fall? hardly seems proper to me...
I've also tried: Brake and shift, inside pedal up. Come in wide. Turn into the apex, not lean and fall - again there is something missing there.
The only switchbacks I recall navigating without the fall involved some trail blazing which again I don't think is the recommended method.
