Paragraph 4: compare declining percentages of males and females who rode bicycles in the 18-59 age groups.
Paragraph 5: contrast the rise in the figures for cyclists aged 60+.
The table depicts the proportion of people from all age groups in a town who rode a bicycle in the year 2011.
We understand from the table that the percentage of female cyclists was much higher than male cyclists in all age groups. Meanwhile, for both genders, the proportion of the population who rode bicycles was the lowest between the ages of 18 and 59 respectively.
Among the age group between 0-9, the proportion of female cyclists was 51.3%, while it was 50.3% for the male cyclists of the same group. At the same time, the proportion remained high among 10-17-year-old females at about 42%, and the percentage of males gradually declined by over half to less than 25% in the same age group.
The percentages for both genders aged 18-39 were significantly lower at just 17.1% and 9.7%, respectively. Besides, the figures slowly dropped for females and males aged between 40-59, which were merely 12.3% and 8%.
Moving to the oldest age group, which is over 60+, the percentage of cyclists from both genders increased, which accounted for 18.5 % for females and 13.2% for male cyclists.
