Congratulations Mike Berg from Moorpark, Ca on winning the Sapwi Bike Park Special Edition Giant STP! Since Mike is local, we are excited to see him getting rad on his new bike out at the park. We want to thank @npbikeshopinc for curating and building this awesome bike. Without their help, this bike would not have been possible. Thank you to everyone else that donated. We operate on entirely on public contributions, so every donation is greatly appreciated.
Just a reminder that the Sunday maintenance hours are back in a big way tomorrow. The park will be closed for riding 9am-12pm, but we encourage anyone that wants to help to come to our maintenance hours. This is a good way to learn what it takes to keep the park going. We have plenty of tools and after the rains, we have enough clean up work to go around. We look forward to seeing anyone that wants to help.
Dough for the Flow is back! This time Newbury Park Bike Shop put together a custom hard tail bike built for jumps, pump tracks, BMX tracks…or any other form of getting rad. This Sapwi Bike Park Special Edition Giant STP is truly a one of a kind. The frame is part of a limited run by Giant and is not available for sale. The top of the line components include carbon handlebars, carbon cranks XTR rear brake and hand built, bombproof wheels.
For a $20 donation, this bike can be yours! We are limiting the total number of tickets to 500, so donate soon before all the slots run out.
We are accepting donations for this bike starting December 13 through January 17th 2020. We will be selecting a winner of the drawing on Saturday January 18th at 1:00 PM PDT
Donate for your chance to win a Sapwi Bike Park Special Edition Giant STP courtesy of Newbury Park Bike Shop!!! Each $20 donated gives you a chance to win.
All proceeds will go toward completing the Sapwi Bike Park located in Thousand Oaks, California. The Sapwi Bike Park project is a partnership between the Concerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association (CORBA) and Conejo Recreation and Parks District (CRPD). The park is a free, public recreational bicycle skills park facility designed for cycling enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels.
Phase one and two of the bike park are now complete and open to the public for riding. Additional funding is needed for future phases and maintenance of the bike park. The next phase planned is an expert jump line next to the existing beginner, intermediate, and advanced jump lines.

The bike park will be closed for riding tomorrow from 8am-12pm for our weekly maintenance. We encourage anyone that wants to help to come on down and pick up a shovel. We will have tools available for anyone that wants to help!
This will be a weekly event, so if you plan to ride on Sundays, just know that we will not open the park until 12pm on Sundays.
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!
