PHASE III is coming soon which will add an Expert Jump Line, a step up from the current ADVANCED LINE. It will contain up to seven wood ramp jumps, some up to 6 feet in height. It will be an awesome addition to park. Check out the concept image:
Phase III will also include doing some work on the existing jump lines to make them even better. No matter your level of riding, Phase III will bring something fun and new to the park.
Phase III, along with the entire park, is only possible through the generous donations people like you make, as the park is fully funded by donations, sponsorship and grants. We cannot do it without you.
We want to thanks all those who donated over the last three weeks during our "Weekend Prize Giveaways". We raised well over our goal and were able to move forward with Phase III because of your generosity. As a reminder, the winners of the prize packages for the three weekends were:
Weekend 1: Mark with a donation of $500
Weekend 2: Steve with a donation of $200
Weekend 3: Jordan with a donation of $300
While we have met our current goal for Phase III, we are already working on plans for Phase IV which will include a flow line trail with lots of cool options and features. We can always use more funds for both Phase IV and the ongoing maintenance of the park. Any sized donation helps. We also need your help in spreading the word and sharing this page.
Thanks again for both past and future donations.

About the Sapwi Bike Park
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 will be a free, public recreational bicycle skills park facility located in the heart of beautiful Sapwi Trails Community Park in Thousand Oaks, California. The Community Park will also feature several miles of multi-use trails, natural habitat preservation, and other activities such as disc golf, cross-country running and model aircraft flying.
CORBA, a 501c3 nonprofit, is a chapter of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). CORBA has entered into an agreement with CRPD to construct and maintain Sapwi Trails Bike Park and the multi-use trails and skills stations within Sapwi Trails Community Park. Sapwi Trails Bike Park will offer a wide range of trails and features to challenge all ages and skill levels. A hard-surface beginner pump track will ensure year-round activity. Features will be progressive, to allow riders to gradually build their skills. This is an exciting project in a community that is deeply invested in and supportive of cycling and trails.
CORBA is asking for your support to see this effort through to completion. CORBA has taken on the responsibility for funding and executing this project that will benefit the whole community. The Bike Park is a sustainable recreation facility with broad appeal. Because bike parks are enticing and intriguing, they are effective at drawing people into cycling. The Sapwi Trails Bike Park will also be a great way to keep kids involved in healthy outdoor pursuits. In this day of video games, television and cell phone apps and games, it is important to have readily available opportunities for kids to participate in sports. Childhood obesity is at an all-time high. Conditions such as juvenile diabetes and ADHD have been linked to lack of physical exercise in today’s youth. Mountain biking and BMX park riding are types of recreation that, because of their visual impact and perceived “coolness”, are apt to attract kids who might otherwise seek out less healthy lifestyle choices.
