BMX & Pumptracks

BMX is an exciting and fast paced sport and was one of the highlights of the London 2012 Olympic games. Well-designed tracks provide an excellent alternative to conventional sports facilities.

A full scale BMX track can develop riders to the top level of the sport, provide a location for race and club meetings and form the base for strong community led groups.

Pumptracks are visually similar to bmx tracks, though generally a lot smaller in scale. They are suitable for parks and can be planned into housing developments. Riders propel themselves around the track by 'pumping' the bike in an up and down motion rather than pedalling. They are intuitive, fun and keep users in great shape.

These smaller projects are perfect for developments in towns and cities.

We operate a dedicated team for the design and construction of BMX and pumptracks, please view our dedicated site www.pumptracks.co.uk for more details here.

About Us

Back on Track was formed in 2004 by Rowan Sorrell, who, following 10 years of riding and racing around the world, decided it was time to take a risk and make a big step towards what he had always dreamed of doing; a career in designing and building mountain bike trails.

He speculatively quit his job and managed to secure a contract inspecting and maintaining the mountain bike trails in South Wales. A year later, having proved his knowledge and hard work ethic whilst managing the 120km trail network, working alone with just a van full of tools; Rowan was selected as Designer for the upcoming new trail centre development at Brechfa Forest in West Wales. This led to a shift towards trail design and project management with a number of large contracts delivered over the next few years, as the company began to expand.

During this time, Rowan quickly identified that working with operators that have little or no knowledge of mountain biking was a barrier to reaching the high standards of design and finished work that Back on Track were striving to deliver. The next chapter in the company’s development was started, with investment in specialist construction equipment and skilled mountain biking machine operators hired and trained in-house. Suddenly, it all made perfect sense; a team of experienced and knowledgeable designers and consultants working directly with our own team of skilled trail builders, all driven and working towards the common goal; to design and build the best mountain bike trails possible.


'A decade on, Back on Track are still driven and motivated by the same passion and underlying belief that we were back in 2004. A belief that trails and facilities could be better; more engaging, more creative and more accessible.

We held a strong vision of what we believed mountain biking could become and have been intrinsically involved in the development of the sport to help realise that vision. Mountain biking is still growing, creating opportunities for new facilities and exciting new businesses to develop and flourish. During this time, we have developed an unrivalled experience and knowledge of the processes involved in consultancy, planning, construction and ongoing site-management, and we are only getting started on this journey.

We believe that mountain biking as a pastime is something special that should be developed, shared and cherished. We believe as many people as possible should enjoy the many benefits that the sport can bring; with improvements to health, fulfilment, wellbeing and a better connection to their environment and the natural world.'
