All about bicycles, electric-assisted bikes, technology and safety in the press

In our daily work as we deal with bicycle safety, technology and user manuals we come across lots of safety risks. The most frequent ones are published in articles of the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR – Europas Rennrad-Magazin Nr. 1, BIKE – Das Mountainbike Magazin Europas Nr. 1 and E-Bike – Das Pedelec-Magazin to make this information important for the sector accessible to a wider public.

For many years now the Eurobike Show Daily accompanying the annual international Eurobike Show has given us the opportunity to publish our perspective on major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent lectures about all topics relating to bicycle technology and bicycle market. In addition, we are regularly cited by further special-interest magazines or trade journals as well as more and more by radio and television and in their media reports, which shows us that we are completely right with our information. The section NEWS informs you about the latest news from our specialist fields. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to topics of interest., 2013/07/08

Zedler-institute establishes education partnership with schools

Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH has started a project which gives pupils first insights in care and maintenance works on bicycles. With this aim in mind the test institute established an education partnership with three schools in Marbach on Neckar.

This education partnership was initiated by Bernd Schlegel, headmaster of Uhlandschule (school for children with special needs) and Dirk Zedler.

Silke Benner, headmaster of Werkrealschule Tobias-Mayer-Schule, and Monika Mayer-Schumacher, headmaster of Anne-Frank-Realschule, are enthousiastically taking part in this project.

Selected pupils of the three schools experience and organize the setup of “their” workshop from the beginning. Together with a master mechanic cycle craft from the Zedler team and the bicycle-enthusiastic school social worker Mark Lange they will rework a room at Uhlandschule into a bicycle workshop before they will be instructed there in the basic knowledge of bicycle technology.

Dirk Zedler is looking forward to the project: “We've got the opportunity to give selected pupils a deep insight into promising technologies combined with practical training and to show them that bicycles and in particular pedelecs and e-bikes make a significant contribution to changing urban mobility. For the success of the project we not only share our knowledge and our enthusiasm all around the bicycle, but we also make available a good portion of the workshop equipment as well as of the bicycles and components necessary for screwing.”
