One of the oldest bicycle manufacturers in the world Raleigh was founded in Nottingham, England in 1887. By 1913 they were the largest bike manufacturing company in the world and also produced motorcycles and three-wheel cars. Now owned by Dutch company Accell their bikes are designed around one simple idea: make them really, really fun. An idea that inspired their very first bikes in 1887 and continues to inspire how they do things today. After-all, fun makes people happy. And that's something they proudly stand behind.
