Raleigh was originally based out of Nottingham, England, but over the last 100 years the business has morphed and is now based here in the US. The owner of Skunk River Cycles, Ronn Ritz, has been building and selling Raleigh bikes for over 40 years.  Raleigh makes great commuters such as the Venture Series and Route Series of bikes. They also make the speedy RX cyclocross bike, and the Tamland gravel bike both of which are shop favorites. Click here to check out the Raleigh lineup.
