A NOTE OR TWO ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

Onbike is inspired by nature, driven by passion and run on hard work. The business is owned and operated by Heinrich Ungerer and Sean Disney, both accomplished mountain guides and adventure professionals.

This friendship forged in the outdoors has straddled continents, scaled mountains, meandered down rivers and made its way from dinner tables and late night conversations to a boardroom. Here the plans for a new business venture was ultimately tested and refined.

Sean is an adventure and mountain guide with more than 20 years active global expedition experience. He is a qualified TG26 Mountain Guide and the owner and director of Adventure Dynamics International (“ADI”). A published author, motivational speaker and multiple explorers grand slam climber, Sean is widely regarded as an adventure icon, a successful business owner and entrepreneur.

Heinrich’s love for the mountains, exploration and passion for human movement stems from growing up on the foothills of the beautiful Boland mountains in South-Africa.  He pursued a career in sport and adventure by completing his degree in sport science, working as a personal trainer, swim coach and later complementing his skills with guiding qualifications gained in Alaska and South-Africa.

Heinrich’s passion for entrepreneurship and optimal living has seen him develop various social entrepreneurship and food security projects whilst working as an active guide for the last ten years.

THE PIONEERS

In August 2015 Onbike, together with local experts, pioneered and successfully completed a new route. We completed the first mountain bike traverse across Iceland from the edge of the arctic ocean in the North-east at the Jökulsárgljúfur National Park to the black beach of Skógafoss in the Southwest.

This epic adventure was made possible by a hard core bunch of Onbike pioneers: Gregg Kamstra, Andrew Van Der Velde, Ben Swart , Neil Esterhuysen, Mark Till, Grant Evans, Sean Disney, Heinrich Ungerer , Rúnar Theodórsson and Aron Reynisson.
