Memorial Day Fundraising Event

We are excited to announce our first annual Memorial Day Weekend bike skills and pump track events at the bike park!
On Sunday May 26 we will be opening up the pump track from 10am-2pm for a private session for all those who register in advance. Come on down to the pump track to prove you are the fastest person the track! Each registered rider will be able to test themselves on optional timed solo laps. Awards will be given to the fastest rider in each category. We will also be holding coaching sessions for those not quite ready to test your time on the track, so this is an event for all skill levels. The minimum donation for this event is $10, but all of the proceeds will go directly into building the next phase of the bike park. If you are interested in participating in the event, please visit sapwi_tourney.eventbrite.com to register. We are limiting the number of riders for each session, so register soon before the spots get filled! We will be posting more about this event in the the coming weeks, but if you have any questions, send an email to info@sapwibikepark.com. We are looking forward to seeing everyone out at the bike park! #pumptrack#memorialdayweekend#fundraiser#nextphase#kingofthetrack#queenofthetrack#sapwibikepark

Dough for the Flow

Enter to win a custom Giant Trance Advanced Pro 29 Team Build!!!

We are excited to announce the Dough for the Flow fundraising campaign! Giant Bicycles has made it possible to win An Eliot Jackson replica 2019 Trance Advanced Pro 29 Team Build.

Every $5 entry will enter you for a chance to win this complete build, so the more you enter, the greater your chances will be 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 of the bike park, a pump track, is now complete and open to the public for riding.  Additional funding is needed for future phases of the bike park.  The next phases will include beginner, intermediate, and advanced level jump lines.

Special thanks to sponsors Giant Bicycles and Shimano for making this one of a kind, Giant Factory Off-Road Team edition dream bike possible.  The 2019 Giant Trance Advanced Pro 29 features an Advanced-Grade full composite frame, Shimano XTR 12-speed components, Fox Factory suspension, and Giant TRX 0 composite wheels.

Giant Factory Off-Road Team rider Eliot Jackson has a special connection to the Sapwi Bike Park – it’s essentially being built in his backyard just down the road from where he grew up in Thousand Oaks, California. As a youth in the area, Eliot and other local riders struggled to find quality spots to ride. They often resorted to building their own jump trails in places where they may or may not have had permission to do so. This was great for reaping the rewards of hard work, but often ended in the spot being destroyed by the land owner or authorities. One of the main goals for Sapwi Bike Park is to provide a quality, sustainable, and legal place for riders of all skill levels to enjoy. Help us make it a reality while also getting a chance to win a replica of Eliot’s team bike!

Pump Track Progress

The pump track build is coming along nicely. Bellfree Contractors, Marshall Mullen, and several of the Sapwi Bike Park Committee members have been hard at work on a unique design that should end up being super fun to ride. Various rollers, berms, and transfer options should keep things interesting!

Volunteer Day

On Saturday, August 11th volunteers spent their morning at the bike park helping prep the area for the pump track build-out. Student-athletes and coaches from Newbury Park High School Mountain Bike Team along with members of the community worked together on a warm summer morning. The task at hand was clearing weeds from huge piles of dirt, which had been removed from other areas of Sapwi Trails Community Park during construction and donated to the bike park by Conejo Recreation and Park District. With 18 volunteers the work went smoothly and efficiently being completed in less than three hours. Snacks were provided by CORBA keeping our volunteers fueled and plenty of ice water was available to stay hydrated. Thank you to all who showed up to keep this project moving forward!
