World’s Ultimate Bike Traveler

Okay, Jim, here’s your role model. –Corrie

f there’s a living legend of bicycle touring, it’s Heinz Stucke, the world’s ultimate bike traveler.

Born in 1940, the cyclist has been pedaling down the road for 48 years after leaving his hometown of Hovelhoff, Germany, on a 3-speed bicycle.

Nearly 370,000 miles later, Stucke has visited more than 200 nations and territories and he’s still going strong. Most recently, he completed a 6,000-mile tour between Brazil and Alaska on his Brompton bike.
