TRAIL DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION

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, on-site 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.

With 20 years’ experience in the industry across the world, both as a guide and a ground worker, Tom has an in-depth understanding of what makes for a great trail – and how to achieve it. Splitting his time between Scotland, and the Aosta Valley in the Italian Alps, Tom can advise on your project, wherever you are.

From pinpointing the ideal site to helping you secure the necessary funding, Collective Trax can help you every step of the way – and make sure your trail construction matches your unique requirements and design.

But why not let Tom explain more in person – get in touch to discuss your project!

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

And you’ll receive a free PDF follow-up report with tailored suggestions, whether you go ahead with the proposal or not.

Trail Construction

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

Trail construction 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 can take care of the whole process for you using trusted, reliable subcontractors.

Or, if you prefer to use your own contractor, Tom will work on-site with them to ensure your trail is built with the correct rhythm and flow for optimal enjoyment and safety of the intended users.

Testimonials

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

Auchenblae Parks Committee have just completed a pump track / bike trail around the football pitch in Auchenblae.  The committee had the initial idea for the track and raised funding from a number of sources to pay for the work.  We then had the good fortune to engage with Collective Trax and Tom Durham.  Tom took our initial design ideas and worked with us to finalise the layout / structure of the tracks.  Tom also recommended the grounds work contractor and supervised the work during the planning, construction and completion of the track.  The work was completed on time and below budget, with no HSE issues.

As a village and a committee we are extremely happy with the work done by Collective Trax.  The trails have been open since the start of the summer holidays and have been very well used with very positive feedback from everyone.

  • Can be assembled quickly without tools, on any flat surface

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.

I deal personally with all clients, and visit them all on-site before, during and after construction to maintain a high level of service and ensure delivery of an excellent facility.
