What

Come ride and hang out with Ibis owners, friends and family in towering coastal redwoods.

The whole idea of an Ibis Migration is to ride and have fun. 

 

Where

The Ibis Migration Mendocino takes place at the Mendocino Woodlands, a rustic nearly 100 year old camp deep in the majestic old-growth redwood forest just a touch outside of Mendocino California.

 

When

Thursday August 15th to Sunday August 18th, 2018. We have the camp rented on Thursday, so you are encouraged to show up Thursday night. Food and activities start first thing Friday morning. This year we have the camp until dark on Sunday, so we'll be able to ride as much as we want. Breakfast and lunch are included Sunday. 

 

Why

Because the riding is killer, the setting is beautiful, your cell phone won't work, there's no internet, almost no electricity, and this is the birthplace of Ibis. Back in 1981, Ibis was founded by Scot Nicol right next to the Mendocino Woodlands (there was no internet then either but he did have electricity most of the time).  

 

What to Expect

Three days of glorious loamy singletrack riding deep in the redwood forest of Mendocino. 

 

Rental Bikes

We've secured the Ibis HQ based demo fleet for rentals for the Migration. Give us your info, show up, we'll have a bike for you. Rental fee including fit, transportation and the bike will $150 and we are donating all the proceeds to the Mendocino Coast Cyclists (the local heroes/trailbuilders). Reserve on the Eventbrite page.

 

Ibis Demo Fleet

The Ibis West Coast demo fleet will be in attendance. It's free and first come first served.

 

Our Wonderful Sponsors

This year, we have a few industry partners supporting us.

We'd like to welcome Seismic Brewery out of Santa Rosa back to their second Migration!

Venue and Accommodations

Cabins at the Woodlands are simple, rustic and beautiful, with little balconies and views of the forest below you. The cabins have fireplaces too. Note that you need to bring your own bedding.

A short walk from each cabin is a shower and toilet. You can look at the camp map here.

 

NEW! Glamping!

While the rustic cabins are more cozy than tent camping with their spring cots and foam vinyl mattress pads, we realize there might be a few of you interested in spending a bit more for a little more comfort. Enter, glamping.

We are tailoring just a few of the Woodlands cabins with premium inflatable Queen size airbeds (sits 19” high), made up with cozy sheets, pillows and bedding.  These cabins will have a few extra comforts including curtains, rug, night stand, lantern and camp chairs. Two packages are available, couples or family. 

 

Skills Clinics

Included in the price of admission are riding and skills clinics all weekend long. 

Back by popular demand we have Brian Astell from Trail Works. Brian an amazing skills and fitness coach who will be teaching us how to be better riders during the weekend. 

Your women's coach will be Asa Shoemaker, TBF Mountain Bike Skills Coach. Asa will guide beginner, intermediate and advanced clinics during the weekend:
