Spoiler for The sand was only a cover-up.

Every day, a cyclist crosses the border between France and Germany carrying a bag. Each day they empty out the bag and all there is in the bag is sand. No matter how much customs officials investigate him, they do not know what he is smuggling. Do you? ?


We know:
1. There is a cyclist (we don't know he has a bike. "Cyclist" is what you'd call, for example, Lance Armstrong, even without a bike.)
2. He crossed the border "between" France and Germany
3. A bag with sand in it, but nothing else ("all there is is sand in the bag")
4. He is "investigated" by the customs officials
5. Customs officials don't know what he's smuggling

We don't know:

1. If he actually is on a bike
2. What border he is crossing. There are several boarders "between" France and Germany: France's boarders with Germany, Luxemburg, and Denmark, Germany's border with France, Luxemburg and Denmark, and arguably Denmark's border with Luxemberg. Or, you could travel west from France or East from Germany, and there would be even more borders.
3. how much "no matter how much customs officials investigate him" means -- could mean they looked at him, could mean full body cavity search
4. the condition of the customs officials (blind, stupid, etc.)

So, do I "know" what he's smuggling. No, because there is clearly insufficient information to reach an answer. If bicycle is an acceptable answer, I say the answer is nuclear rockets. I see no reason why my assumption that he's carrying a rocket is any less reasonable than the assumption that he's carrying a bicycle. You can't say: "well the customs guys would have noticed a rocket" because they would have noticed a bicycle, too.

I'd guess he's not smuggling anything, rather the sand-filled bags are being used as physical training weights for the tour de France bike race ¬_¬

You are the best! I perfectly agree with you!

For me he mot smuggling nothing he is just carrying the sand bag to be heavier and get trained
