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.

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)
