Heinz Stücke - born on 11 January 1940 - is a German cyclist and former world record holder as the cyclist with the longest pedaled distance. He undertook all his tours through 196 countries with his faithful three-gear bike. Although it was stolen several times during his travels, it always found its way back to its owner.

According to his own information, he cycled more than 530,000 km on one and the same bike within 37 years until August 2005. By 2014 this distance had almost doubled to 648,000 km, until he decided to finish the tour and return to his home, Hövelhof.
