The Raleigh Bicycle Company is a bicycle manufacturer originally based in Nottingham, UK. Founded as Woodhead and Angois in 1885, who used Raleigh as their brand name, it is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world. It became The Raleigh Cycle Company in December 1888, which was registered as a limited liability company in January 1889. From 1921 to 1935 Raleigh also produced motorcycles and three-wheel cars, leading to the formation of the Reliant Company.
Raleigh still design hundreds of bikes every year, from your first bikes to your fastest bikes, and we’ve been doing it for generations. With over 125 years experience of designing the best bikes around, plus one of the biggest cycle accessory distribution arms in the UK, it’s no wonder we’re the nation’s favourite bike brand.
Keen-eyed cyclists will spot the famous Raleigh Heron’s head badge in well over 100 countries around the world, which helped coin the saying here: ‘the sun never sets on a Raleigh’.
