100’s of kms of mountain bike trail designed and over £300,000 of funding secured for new trails in the last 5 years

Facilities to suit your requirements and budget – with expert, advice and step-by-step support

Mountain biking participation has grown consistently over the last decade and is now estimated to contribute £149m per year to the Scottish economy alone.  Across Europe this figure is estimated to be billions of Euros.

Would you like to join hundreds of other organisations – from schools to ski resorts, local communities to regional administrations, diversified farms to wind farms – who are now reaping the benefits that mountain bike trails and other facilities can offer?

Founded by Tom Durham, founder chairman of the award-winning Scottish Mountain Biking Consortium, Collective Trax can help make this dream a reality wherever you are based.

Recently merged with CRC Contracting Ltd, we are now able to bring all of your MTB Trail design and MTB trail building requirements together under the CRC banner!

MTB Trail Design & Consultancy

MTB trail design is the core of a great MTB facility.  And a great riding experience begins with a properly designed MTB trail.

With 20 years’ experience in the MTB industry, Collective Trax together with CRC Contracting, can certainly give you a solid professional opinion on how to achieve this.

But of course, no two projects are the same and every organisation has its own unique requirements, objectives and ideas.

So get in touch and lets discuss your project.  We’ll give you some advice on what to do next and how best to progress, depending on what stage you are at with your development. 

You’ll get the benefit of free expert advice, and the chance to discuss in detail, exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve.

We are also able to advise on other areas of facility development and maintenance, a great facility needs a lot more than just great trails!

So get in touch and let an expert advise you.

MTB Trail Building

Just as important as the design is making sure your MTB trail is built to a high standard.

MTB Trail Building techniques differ for every trail, and often within particular sections – so you need a professional mountain bike trail builder to ensure that the best method is utilised at each stage

As an experienced guide, coach and trail designer, Collective Trax founder Tom Durham understands the difference a well-made trail makes not only to the riding experience, but also the sustainability of the trail, and crucially to the safety of users.

When it comes to building your trail, Collective Trax and CRC Contracting can take care of the whole process for you.

I’m Ready To Build Trails, Tell Me More


Collective Trax were appointed to carry out a feasibility study for our mountain bike trail centre project as a result of a competitive tender exercise. We appointed them on the basis of a very strong tender submission and frankly, we consider ourselves hugely fortunate to have done so.

Their level of dedication, expertise and enthusiasm were extraordinary. Our feasibility study was crucial to our project, it assessed both the best location for our facility and the means of ensuring financial viability. Collective Trax very quickly realised that our plans needed a substantial revision and, backed with evidence gained from other projects and from considerable research and analysis, they outlined a bold, ambitious, financially sustainable development which also still met all of our initial goals.

We would highly recommend them to all engaged in similar projects to ours.

James Davidson,Vice Chairman, North East Trail Centre Organisation / Gravitate North East

Tom recently completed a trail network of 4km of new trails in Lochore Meadows Country Park where his involvement began with a proposal in 2014 right through to the detailed design and consultant during the build phase with the project completed in March 2017.

Tom has a very professional approach to all aspects of his work.  He is thorough in preparation, communicates promptly and clearly and ensures that all aspects of a project are well thought through.

Over the past few years he has developed a good network of contacts in the area of trail building and so you can be confident his work is up to date with best practise.

We appointed Tom as the consultant for our trail project as it was important to have someone we could trust to head up and lead the project but also who would keep us fully informed and involve us in decision making when relevant.  Tom fulfilled this and delivered the project on time and on budget.  For these reasons I would be very happy to recommend him for future projects.

  • Is lightweight and compact – for easy storage and transport
  • Can be assembled quickly without tools, on any flat surface
  • Can be set up in an almost infinite number of layouts

About Collective Trax

I’m Tom Durham, former chairman of the award-winning Scottish Mountain Biking Consortium and founder of Collective Trax.

With 20 years’ experience in the mountain biking industry, I’ve seen first-hand the challenges people face when designing, building, and using different facilities. As well as the excitement, pride and financial rewards experienced when a great facility really pays off.

I founded Collective Trax in 2012 to help more organisations – from small community groups and schools to large commercial organisations – take advantage of all the benefits that a professionally developed mountain biking trail or facility can bring.

Collective Trax is now merging with CRC Contracting Scotland Ltd.  This exciting development means that we will be working even more closely with CRC and able to deliver a more complete service to our clients.
