Though children's participation in bike riding increased from 62% in 2003 to 64% in 2012, there was not enough evidence to suggest that this difference was statistically significant. However, girls' participation in bike riding significantly increased from 53% in 2003 to 57% in 2012. The average time that children spent bike riding decreased from 5 hours and 36 minutes in 2003 to 4 hours and 54 minutes in 2012. The average time that girls spent bike riding decreased from 4 hours and 36 minutes in 2003 to 4 hours and 12 minutes in 2012. The average time boys time spent bike riding was also higher in 2003 (6 hours and 24 minutes) than 2012 (5 hours and 30 minutes).
