Searching for Raleigh memories

One of Raleigh's most iconic designs is the Chopper, which first appeared in the early 1970s and was on the wish list of many teenagers at the time. It was relaunched again several years ago.

A documentary company is appealing for members of the public to share their memories of Raleigh bicycles in the 1920s and 1930s.

Testimony Films are making a new documentary for BBC4 celebrating the history of the Raleigh Bicycle Company and the bicycles that revolutionised cycling in Britain.

A spokesperson said: “We are looking for interesting stories throughout the decades from the people who enjoyed Raleigh bicycles.

“We would love to hear from the oldest people in Britain who have had or still own a Raleigh bike.

Were you born in the interwar period and can talk about cycling in the 1920s and 1930s?

Do you have fond memories of a Raleigh bike and the freedom it offered you or tales of adventures on two wheels? Or were you inspired by the sporting greats that rode Raleigh bikes? If cycling has had or still has an impact on your life or that of someone you know, the company would love to talk to you about your story.

If you would like to share your memories with Testimony Films, please get in touch with Emily Sivyer by calling 0117 925 8589, emailing emily.sivyer@testimonyfilms.com, or writing to 12 Great George Street, Bristol, BS1 5RH.
