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.

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.
