Heinz Stücke To Cycle Canada, Go Island Hopping

Heinz Stücke, the world’s longest travelling cyclist, will ride through northern Canada in 2010 and then set off for many of the world’s islands.

The news on Heinz’s progress comes from Japanese bike tourist Daisuke Nakanishi (on the road from 1998-2009 and for 151,849km), who hosted Heinz for a few days in Japan earlier this month. Heinz’s bicycle of choice for this trip was a Brompton folding bike.

Since leaving his home country of Germany in 1960, Heinz has clocked up a massive 592,000km on his bicycle. Heinz recently turned 70 and continues to turn the pedals on his bicycle. He will spend a few months in Europe before boarding a ship for Canada later this year.

A hand-drawn map of the world highlights the places he hopes to visit afterwards. Many are islands and each location falls into one of two categories: necessary for the Guinness Book Record for visiting every country in the world or countries recognised by The Travelers’ Century Club.

list for visit

Heinz has published a short version of his story, called The Man Who Wanted To See It All. From that article, here is Heinz’s explanation of how he ended up on a never-ending journey.

“Although I never intended to travel for so long, I came to the conclusion that going into an area for a short time was simply not enough. It would be very unfair to the people who lived there. You might praise or condemn a country solely on the basis of one encounter, either pleasant or unpleasant. So I decided on a minimum of two to six months per country depending on its size. I felt this period of time would permit me to get a more realistic impression of the place. But in slowing down, time just passed by and there was always another country around the corner. I was hardly ever homesick or tired of travelling, although I have to admit that sometimes I longed for domestic comforts.” – Heinz Stücke

Many thanks to Daisuke for providing the photos and update on Heinz’s travels.

    I first heard of Heinz in 1986, and met him at the Spezi in Germersheim 20 years later.
    Turned out, he has friends in Anniston Alabama, who just lived a few Blocks from wher I lived in 1984.
    Heinz is one of the fiendlies people I ever met.
    I wish him all the best.

    I met Heinz when I was about 10yrs old in 1964 in Egypt. We were camping in the Red Sea . He stopped by for a few hours , we gave him some food and water an off he went. He did write to us that Xmas, sent us a postcard , but we lost track of him. We now live in Canada and would love to see him again. I can’t believe he is still at it. That’s just amazing …..

    My Wife and I met Heinz in mid August 2010 traveling in Northern Britich Columbia- while he was headed North to the Yukon Territory- two weeks later coming back from our Alaska trip we passed him on the road from Dawson City, to Whitehorse in the Yukon Territy- we wondered if he had made this leg of his journey.

    Just met Heinz this afternoon at a local grocery store in Humboldt, Iowa. Spent about a half hour talking to him before he headed out of town. He sure hit some nice October weather here!

    Things i have seen in terms of computer system memory is there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR or anything else, that must match the specs of the mother board. If the computer’s motherboard is reasonably current and there are no operating system issues, improving the memory space literally usually takes under sixty minutes. It’s one of many easiest pc upgrade methods one can picture. Thanks for giving your ideas.

    Thanks for the tips you have provided here. Additionally, I believe there are several factors which keep your auto insurance premium lower. One is, to bear in mind buying motors that are within the good set of car insurance firms. Cars which are expensive tend to be more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance policies are also based on the value of your vehicle, so the more pricey it is, then the higher this premium you pay.

One is, to take into account buying cars that are inside good report on car insurance businesses. Cars which might be expensive are usually more at risk of being snatched. Aside from that insurance coverage is also depending on the value of the car, so the higher in price it is, then the higher this premium you have to pay.

    One thing is one of the most common incentives for using your credit card is a cash-back or even rebate offer. Generally, you’ll get 1-5 back in various expenditures. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1 in return on most purchases, and 5 back on purchases made in convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores and ‘member merchants’.

They supply you with convenient ways to organize homes, pay bills, search for information, study, listen to music and in some cases watch tv programs. An innovative method to complete all of these tasks is with a laptop computer. These personal computers are mobile, small, potent and mobile.

    One thing I have actually noticed is the fact there are plenty of myths regarding the banks intentions when talking about property foreclosure. One myth in particular would be the fact the bank wants your house. Your banker wants your cash, not your home. They want the amount of money they loaned you with interest. Steering clear of the bank will undoubtedly draw a new foreclosed realization. Thanks for your publication.
