To expand on this...

LL >> the 5% number is a modal share, measured in Vehicle Kilometers Travelled. The actual percentage of people who ride a bike some of the time will be considerably higher.

At any point in time during the day, less than 5% of the vehicles on the roads are bikes. Do you dispute this?

Whatever the percentage of usage, if it is measured in kilometers traveled, then that will vary from time of usage due to a factor called speed. A faster vehicle will spend less time to travel the same distance. So if the average speed of a car is twice that of a bike, than the at any point of time of the day, the % of bikes on the road will be double the % of bikes by kilometers traveled.
