BMX biker Ryan Nyquist lists Santa Cruz pad for $1 million

BMX rider Ryan Nyquist is looking to cycle in a new owner to his home in Santa Cruz, listing the four-bedroom spot for $997,000.

Located in the Carbonera Estates area, the cozy 2,469-square-foot house is surrounded by a dense layer of trees, with multiple large decks overlooking the green, park-like landscape.


Skylights and vaulted wood ceilings overlook an open floor plan with hardwood floors. Large windows surround the fireplace in the living room. The master bedroom leads onto the deck, and the basement — which features tile and carpet — has two exits leading onto the patio.

Sally Lyng of David Lyng Real Estate holds the listing.

Nyquist, 38, has been competing professionally for over two decades, and has won multiple gold medals in the X Games. The veteran rider received an ESPY for Best Action Sports Athlete in 2004.

He bought the home three years ago for $865,000, records show.
