It takes ten minutes for me to ride my bike from home to the office. On a hot day, I’m soaked with sweat by the time I get there. But I can ride my bike the other way, from the office to home, without even breaking a sweat.
Why is this?
Further clue: This is true whether we’re talking about my early morning ride to work (sweaty) or my ride home for lunch (no sweat) or my ride back to work (sweaty) or my ride home in the afternoon (no sweat).
And no, it’s not uphill one way and downhill the other. This is New Orleans; there are no hills.
A genuine No-Prize will be awarded to anyone who can provide the correct explanation of this seemingly bizarre phenomenon.
