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. 09/2015

Money per kilometre in a different way: Zedler-institute donates 21 bicycles to World Bicycle Relief

Team members and business partners of the Ludwigsburg company collected kilometres on the occasion of two local cycle tours and the management offset the kilometres by a donation for the kilometres actually cycled. The distances varied from 50 to 180 kilometres. The team summed up altogether more than 7,400 kilometres and thus the equivalent of 21 solid Buffalo-bicycles for Africa. Due to this donation the Zedler-institute welcomed a high-ranking visit at their company head office in Ludwigsburg.

Kristina Jasiunaite, managing director of World Bicycle Relief (WBR) Germany, insisted in giving thanks personally. During her visit at Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH she showed her deep appreciation for the commitment of the team members and was impressed by the positioning of the company in the various fields of business.

After having already delivered two specifically assembled bicycles to the German Red Cross in Ludwigsburg in the previous year, the Zedler-institute as service company shows further social commitment in terms of safety and customer satisfaction in the cycle industry.

Managing director Dirk Zedler declares: "Bicycles are a major source of income in Africa. After having sent there a number of second-hand bicycles directly in the past years, we are glad that this year our donation allows further Africans to manage their lives a little better by the joint use of the bicycles."
