Phase IV is Coming Soon!!!! Depending on how much money we raise, this phase will include:

· A brand new skills area, with additional skills features spread throughout Sapwi Park.
·A complete resurfacing and some modifications to the existing pump track. We want the dirt there to be as smooth and high-quality as the existing jump lines.
· Modifications and enhancements to the beginner jump line.
· Adding and additional jump the the expert jump line.

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.
