Dig In for Sapwi Bike Park!

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

IMBA’s Dig In campaign is live!  Our Sapwi Bike Park project is moving forward and you can help make it happen sooner. Sapwi Bike Park will be free to the public, featuring jumps, drops, pump tracks, flow lines, trails, and as much stoke factor as you can have on a bike!

We’ve received a generous grant from REI to get us going, but to make this a reality we need to raise much more.

Visit: https://win.imba.com/digin?chapter=223846 and make a donation towards building a new, free community bike park in Thousand Oaks. There are 68 projects to which you can donate, so be sure to choose CORBA’s Sapwi Bike Park.

It doesn’t matter how big or small your donation, every cent counts.

CORBA RAM Ride & Pancake Breakfast CANCELLED Again; Will be Rescheduled

Friday, December 30th, 2016

Due to muddy conditions in Pt. Mugu State Park (Sycamore Canyon), the RAM Ride for Jan 15th has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled.

Ignore the following text, it’s just there for historical perspective…

Come join CORBA & Michael’s Bicycles for the rescheduled RAM (ride & mingle) Ride and pancake breakfast! Meet at the Wendy/Potrero trail head in Newbury Park RTR at 9am. We will ride over to the TEE PEE for a big group photo, then split up into groups. Guided, no drop rides will be offered for beginners, intermediate’s and advanced riders!

Directions to trail head: Take the 101 Freeway to the Wendy exit in Newbury Park. At the end of the off-ramp proceed south on Wendy until it dead-ends at Potrero Road. Park in the adjacent dirt parking area.

Rain cancels the ride and if we get 1/2 an inch or more the night before, we will need to cancel it as well. Sycamore does not hold up well in the rain. You can email Wendy Engelberg for info: wendy@girlzgoneriding.com.

Then we will see you at Michael’s Bicycles in Newbury Park at 12:30pm for a pancake breakfast! A $10 donation to CORBA is suggested. Check out Michael’s Bicycles at Michael’s Bicycles:

We look forward to riding, mingling and eating pancakes with everyone!

Vote for the Backbone Trail

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Our friends at the Santa Monica Mountains Trails Council are in the running for a considerable donation towards maintenance of the Backbone Trail. Anheuser-Busch is giving away up to $200,000 for trail maintenance around the country through the Michelob Ultra Go The Extra Mile Fund.

Here’s the catch: the public decides how much of that pie each nominated trail will receive. Twelve trails have been nominated, including the recently completed Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains. The funds will be divided between the twelve nominated trails, based on the percentage of votes each trail receives.

Votes must be cast by November 30th, and you must be at least 21 years of age to visit the site and vote.  Every vote makes a difference!

Vote now for the Backbone Trail!
