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.

Medium-sized company award for Ensinger and Zedler – Award ceremony at Neues Schloss in Stuttgart

On Thursday, two medium-sized companies from the district were awarded with the "Medium-Sized Company Award for Social Responsibility in Baden-Wuerttemberg 2014" in Stuttgart.

District Ludwigsburg. For the medium-sized company award all companies in Baden-Wuerttemberg with a staff of no more than 500 which support welfare organisations, social organizations, initiatives, institutions and associations and which make a social project together with them were invited to apply. Two medium-sized companies from the administrative district of Ludwigsburg were awarded. 

The prize for the category up to 20 staff members was awarded to Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH in Ludwigsburg. The company has built up an education partnership with three local schools and furnished a bicycle workshop in each school at their own charge. The objective is to give special care teenagers from a disadvantaged social background insight into promising technologies combined with practical training.


The motto of the non-monetary prize is "Performance – Commitment – Appreciation" and acknowledges the voluntary social commitment of these companies. "With their commitment at their place of residence or worldwide the companies dedicate incredibly much time and heart", explain the Caritas directors Prelate Wolfgang Tripp (Stuttgart) and Monsignore Bernhard Appel (Freiburg) in the New Castle in Stuttgart in front of 400 guests. It is important to appreciate this commitment. And therefore the Caritas and the Ministry of Finance and Economy intended to express their appreciation and thanks with this prize.

The representative of the state government for medium-sized and craft trade, Peter Hofelich, explained: "The record number of participants is impressive proof that the companies in the south-west of Germany fulfil their social responsibilities to the full." Vicar general Dr. Fridolin Keck, representative of the Archdiocese of Freiburg, appreciated the social commitment of the companies which was exemplary and worth copying for the church, as well.
