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

The most common safety risks that we come across in our daily work around bicycle safety, technology and operating instructions are also published by us in articles in the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR (Europe's road bike magazine no. 1), BIKE (Europe's mountain bike magazine no. 1), MYBIKE and EMTB in order to make this information, which is important for the industry, available to a wider public.

For many years now, the Eurobike Show Daily, trade fair magazine of the annual Eurobike Show, has also given us the opportunity to publish our view of major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent expert presentations about all areas of bicycle technology and the bicycle market. In addition, we are quoted by further special-interest magazines of the industry and the trade as well as increasingly by radio and television in their media reports, which shows us that we are spot on with our advice. The section "News" informs you about the latest news from our specialist areas. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to areas of interest.

Award winner of category 1 (staff of 20 and less)

Zedler Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH, Ludwigsburg

  • Social partner

Three schools in Marbach: Uhlandschule, Tobias-Mayer-Werkrealschule, Anne-Frank-Realschule and the CCI Stuttgart region

  • Social commitment

The Zedler institute performs research on more bicycle safety and establishes special bicycle reports in case of theft, accident or material failure. The company has built up an education partnership with three local schools. For this purpose the institute has furnished a bicycle workshop with equipment, tools and practice material at their own charge. For the successful management the Zedler institute sends once a week a staff member who teaches the pupils in close cooperation with the social worker of the respective school. According to the CCI in charge and the Education Authority of the State, this is a unique project, as not only one school for children with special needs is project partner, but three different school types at the same time. The Zedler institute intends to support with this partnership special care teenagers from a disadvantaged social background and to give them insight into promising technologies combined with practical training.
