Although TCA officially came into being in the Spring of 2019, the founders/owners had been designing, building and maintaining trails for over a combined 42 years. We each have volunteered extensively across the whole spectrum of trails in the Western NY and North West Pennsylvania area.
Thom Wright- Project Developer Thom has been the primary designer, builder and chief contact
with the Land Manager for Harris Hill Ext. Over the last 16 years, HHE has become an 18 mile
single-track mecca in the heart of Chautauqua County NY. Thom not only has gone from wish to
design to ride ready trails, he has also been a part of 3 IMBA trail crew visits to the region.
Holding fast to the sustainable trail rules, he has been great at creating stellar ride experiences
on a limited budget and space. Thom has an eye for finding interesting lines and dealing with
various pitfalls that might derail where a trail can succeed. He remains a fanatical mountainbiker, hiker
and trailbuilder. Participated in the development of the Chautauqua County Greenways Plan, boardmember
of Chautauqua Rails to Trails and has been highly involved in WNYMBA and NAMBA.
