From NDP Industry Reports: (https://www.npd.com/wps/portal/npd/us/news/thought-leadership/2020/consumers-are-flocking-to-these-5-activities/)Cycling

Shortly after stay-at-home advisories were announced in the U.S., the cycling industry gained momentum from new cyclists.
Many consumers sought family-based activities to keep everyone’s health in check. Dollar sales of bicycles continued to accelerate in June 2020. Sales were up 63% compared to the same time last year. While cycling growth in the early months of the COVID-19 crisis was largely generated from sales of family-friendly bikes, June’s growth came from higher-end bicycles typically purchased by enthusiasts, including road bikes and full suspension mountain bikes.

Sports industry analyst Dirk Sorenson attributes the shift toward higher-end bikes to inventory shortages in more family-friendly categories, as well as cyclists who are now more willing to invest in the activity for the long haul.

Dollar sales of bicycles increased 63% in June 2020 versus the same time last year.

Bicycle sales reached $697M in June 2020.
