Nottingham based company opens its brand new VeloPark on their Eastwood site to improve testing of their products.
Elite riders were seen flying around the course in Eastwood, the site which is purpose built to improve the testing of the companies products and to give salespeople the chance to get to know the bikes better.
The Nottingham based company believes this unique project will allow more people to get involved and will allow them to produce the best equipment for customers and Team Raleigh GAC.
The facility is for cyclists of all levels and it seems it has come at the right time since the biking bug has bitten thousands of people in Nottingham following the Cycle Live and Milk Race events.
Pippa Wibberley, Sales and Marketing Director for Raleigh UK said they were fully committed to Nottingham.

Some of the bikes being tested on the new course could potentially be used in the Tour of Britain and Raleigh say it’s all about getting more people involved and out and about on their bikes.
