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.

“Making Progressive Mobility Simple”

At the Parliamentary Evening of the bicycle industry in Berlin, Federal Minister of Transport Volker Wissing took a clear stand in favour of cycling for the first time. He emphasized the central role of the bicycle for the change in mobility in Germany.

The bicycle is like a dream that is real: “Everywhere we are looking for and researching for the mobility solution. It should be efficient, climate-friendly, affordable, clean, independent of fossil fuels and, if possible, also convey a feeling of freedom,” said Wissing at the State Representation of North Rhine-Westphalia. “The bicycle combines almost all the aspects I just mentioned.”

The organising German bicycle associations, Zweirad-Industrie-Verband (ZIV), Bundesvereinigung Zukunft Fahrrad (BVZF) and Verbund Service und Fahrrad (VSF), welcomed Wissing's announcement that the special Urban and Rural Programme would be continued beyond 2023 for at least the current legislative period. The special programme bundles numerous possibilities of funding the traffic policy on the spot. Until the end of 2023, the programme, which was launched by the last Merkel cabinet, includes funding totalling 670 million Euros.
