Nature has it figured out! Every year when it starts to get too cold, birds migrate to warmer climates. In the fall, when the colors start to change, mountain bikers from all over the world descend upon Moab, Utah. They come to ride the iconic “slickrock” and marvel at the massive red rock walls and arches. This year a small, select group of folks had a much different idea about how to do Moab. During the last week of September the First Ever Ibis Migration happened. If you were lucky enough to attend, you know what it was all about. If not, check out the photos below and see for yourself how amazing 3 days in the La Sal Mountains, just outside of Moab were.
After 3 days of demoing amazing bikes, riding lesser known as well as iconic Utah trails, drinking and eating till our hearts content and bonding with new and old friends the first ever Ibis Migration was hands down the highlight of the year.
