Ever since the first Ibis Migration outside of Moab Utah, we’ve been getting asked about a European Ibis Migration.

We are happy to announce the first European Ibis Migration, held in one of our favorite places to ride (and eat): Finale Ligure, Italy. Working with our Italian distributor 4Guimp and the tour operator Viaggia con Carlo, we will bring you local and shuttled trail rides, food, Italian coffee (yum), gelato, lodging and delicious meals. And more!

You'll experience three days of stunning single track with spectacular scenery above the Mediterranean coast in the heart of Liguria. Scot Nicol, founder and co-owner of Ibis and an inductee to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame will be be there to ride and join in the festivities.

Here's what you'll get:

  • Three guided day rides and one night ride in the Finale Outdoor Resort.
  • Lovingly prepared breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks and beer and wine (you won’t go hungry). If someone doesn’t know already; Italy is all about the food...
  • Access to the 2019 Ibis demo bikes (you need to bring your own bike though, and no it doesn’t need to be an Ibis)
  • Three nights of accommodation at Manie Plateau (camping La Foresta)
  • Ibis Migration T-shirt
  • Mechanical Clinic by Luca Bondi, local bike shop owner, mechanic and Ibis dealer since 1996 (he’s got some unique pieces of IBIS history)
  • Women's skills clinics with our EWS rider and local shredder Lou Paulin ;-)
  • Yoga sessions with a real yoga instructor
  • All the wonderful trails up there
  • Professional photographer will be on the camp (and on the trails) to document unforgettable moments and bike shred
  • Entertainment at night
  • Non riders welcome 
  • Kids welcome

Detailed info and Program

What

Come ride and hang out with Ibis owners, friends and family in the first European Ibis Migration ever.

The whole idea of an Ibis Migration is to ride, have fun and hang out with like-minded Ibisians.

Where

This Ibis Migration takes place in Finale Ligure, Italy  located in the northwest on the Mediterranean coast. The territory surrounding Finale is made up of limestone plateaus and canyons which host a significant biodiversity and important remains of Roman and Medieval times.

When

Thursday July 18th to Sunday July 21st, 2019. We have the camp rented on Thursday, with activities starting the same afternoon (see Schedule)

Why

Because the riding is amazing, the setting is beautiful, trails from the camp step, the food is awesome, endless amount of trail choice, sweet new bikes to test ride and at the end of the day we can throw ourselves into the Med!

What to Expect

Three days of glorious singletrack riding a vast variety of the unlimited trail network in the area. 

You’ll be guided by Finale locals, guides with years of experience who love to share their neighborhood. Many of the rides leave right from camp, and we’ll also shuttle out to some rides as well. We’ll have daily mechanical clinics and yoga for bikers. We’ll also feature women's skills clinics.

We will have a few Ibis bikes to demo, but all attendees are required to bring their own bike.
