Everyone remembers their first Raleigh, right? For 125 years Raleigh has been creating market-leading bikes in nottingham. Chances are that you rode a Raleigh when you were younger.
Established in 1887, Raleigh is not only one of the world’s oldest bike brands, but here in the UK, it is also probably the best known. They still build bikes in Nottingham, where they originally started. Raleigh’s iconic models including the Chopper, Burner and Grifter were the bikes to have when you were a kid. The TI Raleigh 753 Reynolds road bikes of the ’70s and ’80s performed admirably in the Tour de France and other grand tours with a Tour de France win for Joop Zoetemelk riding for TI Raleigh Creda team who also won the team prize setting a record number of stage wins. Raleigh is now part of the Accell Group and they continue to develop, innovate and produce quality bikes for riders of all ages and abilities.
Raleigh design them, they play with them, they ride them, they race them and they commute on them. Their bicycles are a product of the passion that started at the end of the 1800s.
Right from the start the bicycles that were produced were high quality and innovative, but it became more and more evident that a Raleigh bicycle had to be seen as value for money. Value for money has never meant cheap in a Raleigh factory, it means what is says, getting the most from whatever your budget.
