The Raleigh Bicycle Company is a bicycle manufacturer originally based in Nottingham, UK. It is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world.
Make it a Raleigh
Bought my Raleigh SC40 because I wanted to try exercising outdoors. I haven't owned a bicycle for a long time, and didn't want to spend a lot of money because I wasn't sure I'd bike a lot. Three years and 6,000 abusive miles later and my $280 investment is still riding like new. Anyone who's reading... get out there and buy yourself a bicycle. And make it a Raleigh.

Made from a flesh and bones of steel
Hop on. The Raleigh 3-speed is a real bike, made from flesh and bones of steel. The proportions are almost perfect for commuter, Lady, recreationalist. The saddle, covered in leather, was crafted by a man called Brooks. The three-gear Sturmey-Archer hub is a quiet marvel of elegant engineering. 'Made in England' used to mean something. It's heavy and built to outlast the generations that follow. Forget the latter-day aluminum frames, the mountain bike craze, the choppers and cruisers. Hop on. This is a true, gentlemanly machine. This is a bicycle.
