Raleigh (part two): The Fall

In the second of a two-part feature on the Raleigh Bicycle Company, historian Tony Hadland and Jack Thurston look at Raleigh’s post-war success as the world’s biggest bicycle manufacturing company and its long decline to a point where it was sold off to overseas investors and abandoned manufacturing in its home town of Nottingham. The Raleigh name lives on as a brand owned by Accell, a larger Dutch company.

Tony Hadland is the author of Raleigh: Past and Presence of an Iconic Bicycle Brand.

Please share your Raleigh recollections for next week’s show.
