The legend of legends of bicycle tourers
“It is the unknown around the corner that turns my wheels.”
At first Heinz Stucke, the man who is rumored to have done more bicycle touring than anyone in history, was just a rumor. Then I met someone who met someone who met Heinz, and then not too long ago I met someone who met Heinz, confirming that he is still going. I’m still waiting to meet him, but finally I have proof he exists. Heinz has been on the road since 1962 and has logged over 600,000 KM. Now this guy probably has enough adventures to fill a library.
A tip of the bicycle helmet to you, Heinz. Good luck breaking a 1,000,000 kilometers.
