World's oldest and best known bike brand
Sir Frank Bowden purchased an interest in a small bicycle company on Raleigh Street, Nottingham, England. Taking its name from the street, the ‘Raleigh Bicycle Company’ was founded in 1887. Raleigh is one of the world’s oldest and best known bike brands. Everyone remembers their first Raleigh, right? For 130 years Raleigh has been creating market-leading bikes. Chances are that you rode a Raleigh when you were younger – and maybe you still do now. Raleigh’s bicycle ranges currently include models for road riding, fitness, mountain biking, leisure riding, models for children, and models for adults. There is also a wide range of Raleigh cycling accessories available, such as floor pumps, gel seat covers, and repair kits.
