Heritage of Raleigh
Raleigh has been spreading the joy of cycling since 1887 when Frank Bowden founded the company and began to grow a cycling empire of joyriders. By the 1920s, Raleigh was a world leader in bicycles, producing 100,000 a year.
Perhaps Raleigh’s most celebrated era though, is the 1970s and ‘80s. A time which saw the release of such icons as the Chopper, the Burners, Grifters, the Vektar, and the TI. Everyone has their favourite, and we all remember a time when playin’ out was more fun on two wheels (and sometimes even one!).
