Raleigh Bicycle Company was the original name of the company that represents one of the world's first bicycle manufacturers. A global bicycle supplier back in the day and renamed in the late 80s, and now known as the Raleigh Cycle Company. The Raleigh bike is bedded deep into British history. Raleigh has always had a reputation for, honest, reliable bikes, at an affordable price. The famous Raleigh Chopper deservedly earns a place in the British Design Museum as an iconic cool British design...how cool is that...Ridelow may still end up there also.
