Raleigh is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world, originally based in Nottingham, UK. Starting in 1887 on Raleigh Street, Nottingham Frank Bowden bought a bike due to his physician notifing that he needed to improve his health. From this his facination with bicycles took off, he bought out the business from the fellows he bought his bike from and renamed the company to Raleigh Bicycles to commemorate the formation of then new company on the street where it all started. From then on business took of from expansions and popularity of the construction of the bike – all the way to today 122 years later!
