Take the midpoint of each interval (e.g. 29.5 for the 25-34 group, although other interpretations are possible, e.g. that 34 really means anything up to 35) and multiply by its percentage, do so for each category and add up all the numbers to get a (weighted) average (this is the best you can do without making any other assumptions about the age distribution within an interval). Doing so for all but the <18 and >65 groups gives 32. I chose 17 on average for the <18s and 70 for the >65s (feel free to choose other reasonable numbers, but it shouldn't change the grand total too much), gives a total average of around 35.

it's interesting that the highest representation is between 25 and 44, coincides with the most sought after demographics for advertisers. Coincidence? Nah.

I'll be 46 in 6 weeks, but the 12 years of playing goalkeeper on a futbol field have added at least 5 to that physically. Of course you could also argue that riding for the last ten has taken those added five back.

The Dr. says I have the heart of a 30 year old, so I'm not going to complain.

If I didn't work on my own bikes, you're on my short list of guys I'd trust my bikes with.
Thank you very much!Chen2

Coming from you I consider that a very high compliment. I think you communicate better than I do. I also think you know more about bikes. You're one of the people on this forum who always gives good advice without rubbing people the wrong way.

I just turned 39, and plan to celebrate anniversaries of 39 from here on.

Just kidding. Age is just a number.
