Raleigh Ventura bike

Raleigh Ventura


This Raleigh Ventura ladies bicycle was made by the Raleigh Bicycle Company, originally based in Nottingham, who started manufacturing bicycles in 1887. Raleigh was always at the cutting edge of innovation. It is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world.

A Raleigh catalogue from the 80’s describes the Ventura model with its frame geometry and top quality specification as “way out ahead”.

A lightweight frame and puncture resistant tyres will make your ride a joy.
