Raleigh began life in Nottingham, England in 1887 and became one of the biggest and oldest bike retailers in the world. Our bikes are still sold in six continents and over 150 countries and we’ve been getting people on their bikes for decades.
We pioneered lots of modern bike manufacturing methods – innovations like carbon road bikes in the 60s, Chopper bikes in the 70s and mountain bikes in the 80s – and our bikes even helped Joop Zoetemelk win the 1980 Tour De France.
In 2010, 30 years after TI Raleigh Creda's Tour De France win, we re-entered the world of professional cycling with the goal of taking the Raleigh name back to the pinnacle of the sport.
