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.

We have done a lot of work to get this project moving. Here is some of the prep work required to build the pump track:

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.

Use of Funds

The development of the Sapwi Trails Bike Park project is volunteer-driven. Funds will be used for the design, construction and future maintenance of the park. Sponsorship funds will be used to:
Hire professional bike park trail designers and builders
Purchase materials and structures
Rent construction equipment and other items directly related to constructing and maintaining park
Perform ongoing development, maintenance and upgrading of park features


Check out our just completed pump track. This is only a small portion of Phase 1 of the bike park project. Funds raised on Gofundme will help us build several jump lines for riders of all abilities.
