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


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

Thurs­day August 25th @ 5 PM to mid-day Sun­day August 28rd, 2022. Show up Thurs­day night. Food and activ­i­ties start first thing Fri­day morn­ing (snag some din­ner in Booneville or in the town of Men­do­ci­no on your way up). Once again we have the camp until Sun­day after­noon, so we’ll be able to ride as much as we want. Break­fast and lunch are includ­ed Sunday.


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).


  • Extra Day-we now have all day Sun­day to ride, eat and frolic
  • Chef Rob Hunter cook­ing both Fri­day and Sat­ur­day nights, and maybe some lunches
  • Chef Phil Ben­der back by pop­u­lar demand for scrump­tious break­fast, cock­tails and snacks


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


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 be $200 and we are donat­ing all the pro­ceeds to the Men­do­ci­no Coast Cyclists (the local heroes/​trailbuilders). Demo reser­va­tions hap­pen begin­ning March 15th at 9am PST on the reg­is­tra­tion page and are lim­it­ed and in high demand.


In years past, we’ve had the Ibis West Coast demo fleet avail­able to reg­is­tered Migra­tors. Due to, you guessed it, pan­dem­ic-relat­ed bike boom and sub­se­quent sup­ply chain issues, it’s not look­ing like we’ll have demos this year.


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.

There are 4 cots per cab­in. Each has a foam sleep­ing pad. Did we men­tion that the accom­mo­da­tions were rus­tic? Well they are, and you might con­sid­er bring­ing a bit more padding for the bed.

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

Note that we will be assign­ing you to a cab­in with oth­er peo­ple. If you want to con­trol your own des­tiny, there are options for a cab­in buy­out or a cou­ples buy­out. You can also tell us that you’d like to bunk with your friends, just tell us their name and we will very like­ly be able to accommodate.


If you’re a cou­ple and you pre­fer pri­va­cy in your own cab­in, we have a spe­cial cou­ples cab­in buy­out. Choose the cou­ples buy­out on our reg­is­tra­tion page.


Got 2 or three friends you want to be sure you can bunk with? We have an option to fill-a-cab­in’ where you get to deter­mine who you are shar­ing your accom­mo­da­tion with. You’ll save a touch if you choose this option and you have 4 people.


$750 gets you in on all the action.

Non-rid­ing par­tic­i­pants: $600

Sprint­er Dwellers: $650 per dweller

Cou­ples cab­in buy out: $1900 gets 2 reg­is­tra­tions and your own cabin

Fill-a-cab­in $2500 for up to 4 people

Kids 6 – 12: $500

Kids 2 – 5 $300


Some of the biggest fun to be had at the Migra­tion is to help out in the kitchen. This can be food prep, bak­ing, dj’ing for the kitchen team, clean up or who knows what? It’s a con­vivial atmos­phere, the chefs are super nice (no yelling!). You will be assigned a shift, could be break­fast, lunch or din­ner. We will give you some shift options upon your arrival. You can look at the pho­tos in the 2019 Migra­tion report under Break­fast and Lunch” to see a few shots of kitchen duty. 

If you’re game, we’ll take $50 bucks off what­ev­er tick­et you purchase. 

To apply, send your culi­nary resumé to…just kid­ding. The only require­ments are good atti­tude and no whin­ing. And for some of you, get­ting up ear­ly to help with breakfast. 

Use the code Dish­Du­ty to sign up. 

How to Register

We will open reg­is­tra­tion in March of 2022, and will announce the actu­al date via our newslet­ter (sign up here, no SPAM, lim­it­ed mail­ings) and on our Insta­gram account. We’ll announce a few days ahead of time so you can round up some of your friends. 


Do I need to own an Ibis to participate? 

No, you don’t have to own an Ibis. We are accept­ing both cur­rent and future Ibisians into the mix. You will need to bring a bike though. 

Can I bring my e‑bike?

No, e‑bikes are not allowed in Jack­son Demon­stra­tion State For­est, where we will be riding.

What are the accom­mo­da­tions like?

Guests will be stay­ing in rus­tic red­wood cab­ins built near­ly 100 years ago, all are on the Nation­al His­toric Reg­istry, so it’s like sleep­ing in a muse­um. Cab­ins are sim­ple and beau­ti­ful, with bal­conies and views of the for­est below you. They have no elec­tric­i­ty and you won’t need to charge your cell phone, because there is no cov­er­age. Best to have your expec­ta­tions set on camp­ing, rather than a 5 star hotel.

Each cab­in has its own lit­tle fire­place and four sin­gle cots with thin foam mat­tress­es. You sup­ply your own bed­ding (twin sheets or a sleep­ing bag are best on the cots). A short walk from each cab­in is a show­er and toi­let. Some adjoin one oth­er cab­in, oth­ers are stand-alone.

NOTE: If you’re com­ing with friends or fam­i­ly who you want to bunk with, let us know via email and we’ll put you guys in the same cab­in if possible.

Are kids invited?

Yes, rid­ers, hik­ers, hula hoop­ers and guests of all ages are wel­come! There are no spe­cif­ic kids activ­i­ties, but we have easy rides that kids can do. If your kid can ride 10 or so miles, we’ll have a ride for them. Kids under 12 will need to have a par­ent with them on the ride, and all chil­dren under 5 need to have a par­ent with them at all times.


We do not know now what the COVID-19 sit­u­a­tion will be in August. Last year we required proof of vac­ci­na­tion and masks while indoors. Men­do­ci­no Coun­ty might require that or oth­er mea­sures this year if there’s anoth­er out­break. There­fore, we may ask for rea­son­able COVID accom­mo­da­tion by our Migra­tors. That could be vax or mask or neg­a­tive PCR or an on-site test when you arrive. Our goal is to ensure every­one’s safe­ty and com­ply with local regulations.

How can I con­tact you with questions?

Email migration@​ibiscycles.​com and we’ll do our best to shoot a response back with­in a day. Once we set foot in the Wood­lands mid­day on Wednes­day August 24th though, we’ll be out of cell phone and email access (yay!)
