Safety Parcours

Saddle up for city traffic? Test your bike skills on the safety course.

Test and improve your driving skills in traffic! On a closed road right next to Europaallee you will experience critical traffic situations in physical and virtual simulations and learn how to behave safely and not endanger anyone.

Brain researcher versus biker in the bike quiz. Who will get the most points?
Item 1: City traffic virtual

With the virtual reality goggles you experience critical situations on Zurich's streets one-to-one, but without any danger - instructive even if you are at home in another Swiss city.

Lot 2: City bike simulator

Coming up short while passing a truck? A car door opening? In a roundabout? Practice these and other situations with the unique interactive bike riding simulator - so you're sure to be fine next time!

Item 3: ABS for e-bikes

It's here: The anti-lock braking system for bikes. Test the new braking performance and experience how the Bosch ABS helps you to brake safely in different situations.

 


  

Lot 4: In the blind spot

Whoever squeezes close to a truck in queue traffic is risking his or her life. From behind the wheel of a large vehicle, pedestrians and cyclists who are right next to it are simply not visible. At this post, you see with your own eyes where the driver's field of vision ends.

Lot 5: Turn left

Velo riders generally move to the right-hand side of the road. If they turn left, they have to cross at least two lanes. At this post you will practice realistically and without any danger what is important: looking back without leaving your own lane, giving hand signals, getting into lane and finally waiting for the right moment to cross.

Lot 6: Visible in the dark

To be seen is crucial in road traffic. This post is about light, reflectors and appropriate clothing.

Item 7: Quiz

At the end you can test your gained traffic knowledge. This way more will stick and maybe you will even win something.
