Home is elsewhwere. Heinz Stücke: 50 years around the world by bike

In November 1962, the then 22-year-old Stücke left his job as a tool and die maker and rode out of his hometown on a three-speed bike, with a dream to explore the world on two wheels. He traveled for 50 years visiting 196 countries, collating 21 passports, covering 648,000km (60,000 on his trusted Brompton) and collating 100,000.
