Ibis raffle fundaiser
More Trails. Better Trails. Help us make it happen and here's an easy way to do it; for every $5 donation you get a chance to win ANY IBIS BIKE, properly decked out with a SRAM X1 group set and RockShox Pike Fork.
Choose your model and your wheel size: 26", 27.5", 29", Ripley, HDR, Mojo SL-R, whatever you want. Size and color is up to you.

The Ripley 29er won the MTBR's Enduro Compare-O: Best of Test - Best Climber. You can learn more about the Ripley and Ibis' other award winning Carbon Fiber bikes here .

Why should you donate more than $5? It’s simple math, the more you donate, the more chances you have to win the Ibis of your dreams. And more importantly, the more money we raise for trail grants and advocacy to ensure the sustainable future of mountain biking in Vermont. This is a win/win situation. By donating, you stand a chance to win the bike of your choice. And, with every dollar donated, you help us build and maintain an expanding network of world class east coast singletrack (the perfect place to ride that new bike you just won), employ local trailbuilders, and bolster the economy of our local community.
