Raleigh UK is one of the world’s oldest and best-known bike brands. Established in 1887 in Nottingham, England and with over 130 years heritage, it is this that drives their passion for cycling and the vision for the future. They believe that sustainable production and products will ultimately add value to the company, which in turn will create new opportunities.

Raleigh is best known for their iconic bikes such as the Raleigh Chopper and Raleigh Burner. A lot has change since the 80’s and Raleigh now specialised in electric bikes such as their Motus range, perfect for city and leisure riding. One thing that hasn’t changed, is that they are still designed in Nottingham, just like they were in 1887.

Research shows that 96% of consumers are willing to pay more for goods that are more sustainable. Accell UK specialise in electric cargo bikes, and their range of e-cargo bikes are extremely popular for growing businesses across the UK. Their zero emissions and low running cost can help increase the sustainability of a business and provide more efficient last mile deliveries. The electric motor provides assistance while pedalling, and with the 900l storage compartment up to 100kg can be transported. When compared to the running cost of a small diesel van, swapping to a e-cargo bike could save a company nearly £6,000 per year. There are so many benefits to electric cargo bikes, and this is why Accell UK are committed to helping companies in the UK to become more sustainable. They offer a full package including insurance, trackers, onsite servicing, and custom signage. And their dedicated business to business team are there to support through the whole process.

Raleigh are currently supporting various projects and schemes across Scotland. They’ve recently been working with Scottish Cycling and St Pauls Youth Forum, to supply bikes for the “Free Kids Bike Scheme”. The scheme was launched by the Scottish government to provide free bikes to children in deprived areas. Raleigh is also working with various councils across Scotland to roll out a number of large scale community cargo bike share schemes. These schemes will enable small businesses to have access to a range of electric cargo bikes/trikes so they can see the benefits for themselves, which is the best educational tool.
