Welcome to the website! Seeker Bikes is all about


Seeker Bikes is a project of mine that has evolved through a couple of iterations now. My name is Ian Ganderton and I’m an Auckland based Mountain Bike Coach and Freelance Outdoor Instructor with a passion for riding, learning, coaching, exploring, and adventure. Seeker Bikes will be my highly personalised mountain bike coaching/guiding service aimed at individuals and small groups who want a bit of assistance in the form of skills coaching to help in that search for flow, new trails, and adventure.

Because this aims to be a highly personalised bespoke service there are now hard or fast rules on how, where, or when the coaching or guiding can be delivered. As a guideline sessions work well as half-days (2.5 hour morning or afternoon blocks) or full-days (5 hours) and the Redwoods Rotorua, Totara Park, or Woodhill all provide outstanding riding venues in which to run them.

Sessions at these 3 venues will be charged at $200 (NZD) per half-day and $400 full day with participants bringing their own bikes and equipment.

With over 3 decades of mountain biking and work in the outdoors around the world, I have developed numerous sophisticated coaching strategies that are trail-proven to make a difference in improving a mountain bike rider’s ability, safety and skill.
