I would just like to invite anyone who would like to come along to the Raleigh Ilkeston bike reunion which will be held on Saturday the 20th April at the Gardeners public house in Asworth / Ilkeston from about 12 noon onwards.
I will be taking about 6 Raleigh bikes from my collection, there will also be other Raleigh enthusiasts bikes.
Come along and meet the men that made these wonderful machines

I'm sorry but due to the size of the venue and that this is a public house there is not enough room for other bikes other than Raleighs but in saying that I would like to see if we could organise a annual event of retro bikes

There will be at least 10 team bikes that I know of, I have been contacted by the marketing director at Raleigh and they are coming along with some of their bikes from head office . Cycling world will also be there to take photos for a forth coming issue of the magazine.
