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. 2017/03/27

Exhibition "200 years bicycle - When the wheels learned how to turn"

Young meets old: Pupils set up bicycle history. Zedler-Institut supports an exhibition for the bicycle’s 200th birthday showing that this means of transport fascinates young people.

For Ludwigsburg’s Oscar-Walcker-School the forthcoming anniversary was reason enough to give their pupils an understanding of this outstanding means of transport. The result of their dealing with the bicycle was comprised in an exhibition that will be open to the public from March 22 to June 29, 2017 at the State Archives Ludwigsburg.

Zedler-Institut helped the pupils to work their way into the history and development of the bicycle. The exhibition gives an impressive view of the development from Draiss’ velocipede to today’s bicycle. The exhibition at Ludwigsburg’s State Archives not only shows the technical developments, but also the bicycle’s impacts on mobility, culture and society.

Two particular items of the exhibition are the patents of Freiherr von Drais and the Stuttgart inventor Johann Friedrich Trefz who developed a velocipede in 1869.

A few bicycles displayed originate from the collection built up by Dirk Zedler together with the Ludwigsburg bicycle enthusiast Helge Schultz. For this purpose the pupils obtained the necessary technical information, historical background knowledge and extensive photographic material.

The exhibition’s opening hours are from Monday to Thursday, 9.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., and on Friday, 9.00 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. The entry is free.

• In addition, you can join several events and lectures.
