A brief History of Raleigh Bicycles
When you buy a Raleigh, you're also buying a piece of history. Raleigh Bicycles began over 100
years ago in 1887 when Frank Bowden purchased a small bike shop on Raleigh Street in Nottingham, England.
Bowden had been told by his physician that he should try cycling for his health. Riding his first bike in 1887,
Bowden was impressed and went to Raleigh Street, in Nottingham, to find its makers.
There he met mechanic R.M. Woodhead, engineering and design expert Paul Angois and financier William Ellis,
the three-man team that built the bikes under their own names and were producing roughly three high-wheel
bicycles each week. He immediately offered to purchase their bicycle manufacturing business. Under Bowden's
guidance, the company grew and just three years later needed a new home. Soon after that, Bowden would occupy
a workshop that covered more than seven and a half acres and change the company's name to Raleigh Bicycles.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Head injuries are the most common bicycle related injury causing about 1,000 deaths and more than 402,000 hospital visits in the USA per year. In a landmark study recently released, researchers have found that the use of bicycle helmets can reduce the risk of rider head injuries by 85% and brain injuries by 88%*.
