Modern Puzzles by Henry Ernest Dudeney: $210$
- A Famous Paradox
- There is a question that one is perpetually hearing asked, but to which I have never heard or read an answer that was satisfactory or really convincing to the ordinary person.
- It is this.
- When a bicycle is in motion, does the upper part of each wheel move faster than the bottom part near the ground?
Dudeney embarks on a prolix discussion on why he believes some people may think otherwise, which is just too tedious to repeat.
