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.

Zedler-Institut awarded

During a ceremony at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action Zedler-Institut (Ludwigsburg) was honoured as a new member of the Association of German Companies for Climate Protection (Klimaschutz-Unternehmen e.V.).

In the report on Zedler-Institut it was praised that 78 per cent of the employees get to work without a car, that 78 per cent of local business trips are made by bicycle, e-bike or e-cargo bike and that 48 per cent of all business trips in 2020 were made by Deutsche Bahn. “The use of bicycles is undoubtedly climate-friendly and healthy. The target of Zedler-Institut is not only to make bicycles and e-bikes more user-friendly, more durable and thus safer, but also to operate a business that takes as little from nature as possible”, states Managing Director Dirk Zedler.
