This episode is a special one. Our guest is Dr Ihirangi Heke. Ihi is a keen cyclist as you’ll hear. He’s also a really smart guy, with several degrees to his name.
His main area of interest is in using the outdoors, including cycling and other activities, and traditional maori knowledge, as a medium to improve health and wellbeing, particularly of Maori, and other indigenous peoples.
Ihi has an approach that is different to conventional health practices, and one that he believes has relevance for everyone.
Ihi loves bikepacking, and is about to start on the Kopiko Aotearoa. His approach to bikepacking is also refreshingly different to how most people do it.
