Do you have to work harder when someone is drafting off of you?

It appears that some think a driver or cyclist who has someone riding their where actually has to work harder due to the drafting since they’re “towing” the person behind them.

Imagine that you’re biking along at a fast, but even, pace. All of a sudden, you find yourself having to work harder to maintain the same pace, so you look behind you and notice that someone’s drafting on your wheel.

Um, no.
