... rear of the pack. It must've been a funny sight for passing motorists who saw a bunch of fancy, dressed up roadies on flash bikes with Nelson, the packhorse, and I tagging along with them. But soon we were only left with the dust of the pack of roadies who were off in the distance although a few stragglers kept passing by. Mt Hikurangi cast a formidable figure as we passed by.

We've been climbing up almost every weekend now, so it's time for a break! After leaving the vans at the car park in front of the world famous (I'd never heard of it) Talisman Cafe, we crossed the suspension bridge that connects to one of ...

The women lead our procession because we are sacred as we bring life, but once inside, we had to sit to the rear of the marae to be protected by our men.
