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., 2015/10/06

Dirk Zedler awarded as "Hero of the new mobility"

Campaign of the ministry: The Baden-Wurttemberg government honours the "Heroes of the new mobility". The bicycle expert Dirk Zedler is one of all in all ten award winners elected by the jury. Now it’s up to the public to make their vote.

The campaign "Neue Mobilität: bewegt nachhaltig" (New mobility: moves sustainably) of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure intends to support those who actively co-create sustainable mobility – be it as scientist, bus driver, businessman or in any other function. With this intention in mind the state award "Heroes of the new mobility" was initiated.

From numerous applications and nominations an expert jury elected all in all ten award winners. Among them Dirk Zedler, founder of Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH. "The fact that I was elected 'hero' is for me a clear signal that not only the jury, but also the Baden-Wurttemberg Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure take notice of the bicycle and the pedelec as equal means of transport", says Zedler happily.

Currently, every citizen has the opportunity of viewing exciting short films and electing all in all three favourites, hereby awarding his three personal public heroes from the all in all ten award winners.
