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.

This time Zedler-Institut was very pleased to receive the award for their trend-setting, ecologically well thought out new building of the company building in the Swabian city of Ludwigsburg. In his laudatio Albert Herresthal, managing director of VSF e. V. pointed out that the building were an impressing statement of the change in energy and transport policy and a good example to show how companies could make a contribution to environmentally aware and sustainable life and work. The energy-efficient building with a large-scale photovoltaic system on the roof not only includes modern offices, but also a bicycle museum and two bicycle parkings with 42 spaces including charging facilities for pedelecs. Dirk Zedler had succeeded in realizing an environmentally friendly construction with impressive determination. This were the icing on the cake of Zedler’s already impressing commitment for the bicycle.
