All about bicycles, pedelecs, 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.

News – "The most bicycle friendly employers 2011"

Zedler institute winner of two prizes

For the 1st place in the regional competition Baden-Wuerttemberg and the 2nd place in the federal competition graduate engineer Dirk Zedler, managing director of the Ludwigsburg company, could receive two winner’s certificates from the hands of Winfried Hermann, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure of the state Baden-Wuerttemberg, during the award ceremony on November 18, 2011.

The competition organised for the second time by the German Environmental Management Association (B.A.U.M. e.V.) and led by the board member Dieter Bruebach is promoted by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Buildings and Urban Affairs and on state level by the State Baden-Wuerttemberg. It is addressed to employers who provide support in particular to their employees using the bicycle as a means of transport. The infrastructure necessary for this purpose must be made available by the employer and the mobility with low CO2-emissions must be anchored in the company philosophy.

Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH was awarded in the category of "5 to 49 employees". During the celebratory award ceremony at the Technoseum in Mannheim, it was pointed out by jury member Albert Herresthal, chairman of VSF, in his laudatory speech that it was in particular the distribution of the cycle virus promoted by the management infecting not only many of the employees, but also parts of their families and beyond that convinced the jury.

Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH secured their success during the evaluation on national as well as state level due to the examplary infrastructure in the company building in Ludwigsburg. The company offers covered and illuminated bicycle stands directly near the entrance, a changing room with lockers and shower facilities, a drying room as well as the possibility to service own or company bicycles under professional guide and to perform repairs. In addition, the common kitchen offers free drinks, such as apple juice, from local meadows for thirsty cyclists. Furthermore, there are company bicycles for short business trips and the possibility of purchasing at reduced prices. All this could convince the jury, just like the motivation to commute to work by bike which is actively practised by the company management.

From the point of view of the sector, it is a pleasure to see that with Paul Lange oHG (2nd place in category "50 to 499 employees") and Tune Fahl e.K. (3rd place in category "5 to 49 employees") two further bicycle companies were happy to receive prices on state level.
