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.

Bicycles with blue lights

Ludwigsburg institute for bicycle technology donates two very special emergency vehicles to the Red Cross.

The bicycles come along with high-quality aluminium frames with a white special paint, red cross and blue lights as a highlight. During the collaboration with the leaders of the bicycle team Michael Raidt and Andreas Schumacher nothing was left unconsidered when planning the "ambulance bicycle". With the help of these bicycles the paramedics are able to transport all major instruments and basic drugs in packing bags to the place of emergency.

"At mass events, at the garden show "Blühendes Barock" in Ludwigsburg or the Ludwigsburg Horse Market we can reach emergencies faster on the bicycles. At such events the ambulance often gets stuck and going to the emergency by foot may be not fast enough", explains Andreas Steinhauser, chairman of the local branch of the German Red Cross, the advantages of fast emergency vehicles. To ensure that this remains the case, the institute for bicycle technology and safety will continue to support the German Red Cross. Because a major part of the about 2000 Euro comprising package are, according to managing director Dirk Zedler, is maintenance and repair. (red)
