Heinz Stücke

“If you are on a bike, you can’t be a bad guy!”
A bike becomes a kind of passport, a business card for Heinz Stücke. For him, the bike is the best mode of transport, giving riders independence in addition to being sporty and cheap.
Stücke has travelled more than half a million kilometers on his bicycle since 1962. He was registered as the most travelled man in history in the Guinness Book of Records.
Some of Stücke’s numbers: traveled to 5 continents and visited 257 countries; spent 48 years pedaling and covered 593,625 km (368,861 miles); had held 20 passports and owned 2 bikes (6 stolen and recovered); travels from 80 to 120 km (50 to 75 miles) per day.
