the Raleigh Sprinter Visit

 

Wow, has the weather been amazing these past couple of weeks or what!?! Combine the great warm weather with the time change and that means I actually get the chance to get out and ride with some of my great Raleigh shops throughout my territory. When I heard I would have the chance to have Drew and the brand new Raleigh Demo Truck for a couple of days I jumped at the chance! Though the notice was a little last minute we were able to get together with a couple of shops to show the product to not only employees but customers as well, surprising quite a few people with the amazing product Raleigh Bicycles is bringing to market these days. We also managed to put together a last minute demo ride with the folks down at Bishop’s Bicycles who host a Tuesday Night Road ride which happens to be hill repeat night for the team. The response was great for sure! We were lucky to have great weather for the ride and the turnout for hill night was great. The Militis 3 impressed the racers looking for a super light, responsive bike that launched forward with ease at each pedal stroke. The Revenio Carbon 3 and Capri Carbon 3 impressed many a rider looking for a bike designed around a great fit, performance handling, and a light weight T700 carbon frame. Here are a few images from our past couple of days of travel. First I’ll start off with some of our shop visits. There were a couple more that I unfortunately didn’t get pictures of while we were there. After the shop images definitely keep scrolling down to check out some images from the ride! You won’t have to look too hard to see the smiles even though we were doing hill repeats.

We lost a good 5 or 6 riders who tore off to head home during the ride but I did manage to get a great group shot of those that rode back to the shop.

demo done and time to pack up the bikes for another demo

the last demo ride while the Sprinter was still here! Brandon went old skool on the bike but new school with the pose!

 

Thanks for reading! Until next time keep the rubber side down.

    Cool to see all the Raleigh’s in action. As always, your shots of the local shops takes me on a trip down memory lane. Cool to see the Ohio countryside from out here in Idaho.
