The first chart looking at biking rate by age groups shows big charts that are in fact a rate between 0% and 1%

Other charts shows growth without actual values behind it. If i'm alone and that someone join me the increase rate is 100% but we're still only 2.

If the number double from 1 million to 2 millions the increase rate is still 100% but 1 million was added.

Looking at person trips and person miles at the NHTS database link where those charts come from

18-39 ride more than 60-79
