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.

Heroes of the new mobility

In Baden-Wuerttemberg clocks run a little faster. In this state the very alert Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Winfried Hermann, awarded personalities who rendered outstanding services to the development of sustainable mobility. One of these "Heroes of the new mobility" is the bicycle expert Dirk Zedler.

Baden-Wuerttemberg’s Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Winfried Hermann, presented the certificates and material prizes to the prize winners of this Regional Prize "Heroes of the new mobility" which took place this year for the first time.

Dirk Zedler was awarded for his long-standing commitment to the safety and user friendliness of bicycles and pedelecs.

"The fact that I was elected 'hero' is all the more encouraging as we don’t have a strong public presence with our business fields experts’ reports, testing services and technical documentation," Dirk Zedler states happily.

For the founder of the same-named Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH this is a clear signal that not only the jury, but also the Baden-Wuerttemberg Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure take notice of the bicycle and the pedelec as equal means of transport.
