Thank you to everyone that came out and made opening day such a huge success. It was amazing to see all rippers come out and spend the day. It is going to be exciting to see how people progress as they get more comfortable with the new lines! We also want to thank SRAM, Giant Bicycles, Newbury Park Bicycle ShopREI, Conejo Recreation and Park District , Conejo Valley CyclistsConcerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association (CORBA), and everyone that made a donation to the park. Without your support, none of this would have been possible!
We are excited to announce that the Sapwi Bike Park will reopen this Saturday! Riders are welcome to come ride our freshly built Phase 2 expansion, which includes a beginner line, intermediate line, and an advanced line. All three lines are rideable. Also, the pump track will be reopened. Peter Sullivan took this time to make the pump track smoother than it has been in a long time. With the new expansion and the cleaned up pump track, riders of all ability levels will have fun. The bike park will be open during the normal hours of the park, so come down at any time. We are excited for everyone to come see the best community bike park in Southern California.
Phase Two update. Construction finished, this week and the expansion is looking good. The crew from Bellfree Contractors, Inc. , Action Sports Construction and some of our committee members were able to test the new lines, yesterday. Everyone agreed that the lines are all fun and flowy. Riders of all ages and abilities will be able to enjoy the new features of the park.
Even though the construction is done, the park will remain closed while we do some additional maintenance before we can open to the public. We are expecting to open the first week of November. We thank you for your continued patience as we are quickly getting the park ready to open.
THE BIKE PARK WILL BE CLOSED FOR CONSTRUCTION STARTING TOMORROW (Oct 3rd).
First the bad news. The bike park will be completely closed. Unfortunately, this also includes the pump track. Because of the work being done, we can not have anyone at the park while construction is going on. The work should take about a month, so expect the pump track to be closed for most of October. We will be updating with a more concrete time table once the construction is underway.
Now for the good news…this construction will begin the second phase of the bike park. The empty area next to the pump track was not intended to be a sanctuary for mustard grass. Instead, it will have multiple jump lines for a wide range of riding ability. The banner at the pump track will give you a general idea of what to expect.
Again, we will be updating with the progress and will give you a better idea when the whole bike park will open as soon as we know for ourselves. In the meantime, PLEASE RESPECT THE PARK CLOSURE AND DO NOT RIDE DURING CONSTRUCTION. We are under very strict rules and it will only affect the park if this is not respected.
Check back here, on Facebook, and on our Instagram for updates. If you have any questions, please send us a DM.
Thank you for your patience while we make the best bike park in the area!
Congratulations to Paul D from Crested Butte, Colorado for winning the 2019 Giant Trance Advanced Pro Team build in our first Dough for the Flow fundraising campaign! He is a huge fan of Eliot Jackson and is very excited to get his hands on this awesome bike. Thanks to everyone who donated to help build Phase two of the park! See you at the bike park!
The rains ended right at the same time the days got longer. Erik Brill and his son Shane took advantage of the longer days with a father and son session at sunset
Dominic Turner got a quick session in between the rain storms.
Due to the upcoming rains, the pump track will be closed. We are placing tarps on the berms to protect from any potential water damage. Please stay off the track until we can remove the tarps and repair the pump track. We will send an update on Instagram and Facebook when the track is ready to ride.
