2022 Ibis Oakridge Migration 67 Large

June 26-29, 2022


Ibis Migration #8

We’ve been enam­ored with the rid­ing in Oakridge for years and years. We bring the Ibis demo fleet to Moun­tain Bike Ore­gon every year, and in 2022 we decid­ed to stick around and hold our first Migra­tion in the State of Oregon.

After a very wet Spring, Oakridge was primed to show off her glo­ry; wild­flow­ers galore, mas­sive fir forests, per­fect weath­er and grip­py old-school singletrack.

Migra­tions have become extreme­ly pop­u­lar, often sell­ing out in min­utes. We decid­ed to have a lot­tery for tick­ets to Oakridge, as we only had 24 slots avail­able. We want­ed to give every­one an equal chance at join­ing us. We had an online sign-up for a few days and end­ed up with 10 times as many appli­cants as we had places avail­able. We then drew num­bers out of a vir­tu­al hat and got in con­tact with the win­ners. And we end­ed up with an eclec­tic and fun group that quick­ly became fast friends. Rid­ing bikes and enjoy­ing meals togeth­er in such an amaz­ing place makes for instant friendships.

Let’s take a look at what hap­pened in Oakridge…

We post­ed up just out­side of Oakridge at the The Lodge at Hills Creek. Our won­der­ful hosts, Rick and Lind­say, pro­vid­ed din­ner the first night at their inti­mate bistro in down­town Oakridge. They also made us amaz­ing break­fasts and lunches,and host­ed us at their well-appoint­ed Lodge. There were nice rooms to stay in one of the two lodges, and we also had #van­life and #tentlife options. We had a giant lawn to relax on, over­look­ing Hills Creek reser­voir and the spec­tac­u­lar Dia­mond Peaks.

Rock Stars

Eugene and Sue, long-time res­i­dents an pro­mot­ers of Oakridge, were the impe­tus behind the Oakridge Migra­tion. They served as extra­or­di­nary guides dur­ing the event, the glue that held the event togeth­er and they are always a joy to be around. Thank you guys so much! You made this event an incred­i­ble pleasure.

Cog Wild

Cog Wild Tours and Shut­tles have been pro­vid­ing sup­port for your moun­tain bike endeav­ors since 2006, and they pro­vid­ed the shut­tles for all three days of rid­ing. If you’re head­ed to Oakridge (or Bend) on your own, look them up!


The food, oh my the food!

A hall­mark of an Ibis Migra­tion is the food (ok, the rid­ing, the bev­er­ages and the peo­ple too). 

Chef Rob Hunter has become our go-to when­ev­er we can get him. He’s in high demand for good rea­son. His food is incred­i­ble. Rob drove up from Men­do­ci­no to ride with us and cook a cou­ple of deli­cious din­ners for Migra­tion num­ber 8. We will let the pic­tures do the talking. 


Espres­so Bob came all the way out from Col­orado with his 3 group espres­so machine to pull shots for us. We were serv­ing Nos­sa Famil­ia Cof­fee, the offi­cial cof­fee roast­er of Ibis Migra­tions and many cycling events in Oregon.
