To mark Men's Health Week, Bicycle Network CEO Craig Richards told a story about his dad and why physical activity is so important.
Males are more likely to die from heart disease at earlier ages and have an increased risk of diabetes, but a lot of this can be avoided by exercising regularly.
A daily 30 minute bike ride is enough to help maintain your physical health, but can also be a great stress relief and is good, simple fun.
Men's Health Week 2020 is from 15 to 21 June. For more information visit menshealthweek.org.au.
