Raleigh Bicycles

Posted by Chris Skogen On February - 29 - 2012

Here at Almanzo we're big fans of the motto, 'run what ya brung' and in no way would we ever encourage anything else. That said though, if you're in the market for a new rig (especially one that crushes the rock) be sure and check these guys out. We've been riding the RXC since late last Fall and absolutely love it. Quick, stiff and responsive, this thing handles like a dream. Whether it's steel, aluminum or carbon that gets you out of bed, Raleigh has something that will to fit your needs. Maybe it's the RXC or the Roper? Maybe your a high style kind of person and it's the International or the Militis? Don't believe us? Go and test ride one today and see for yourself.

A second sample post to see how everything will look and to see how far the body of text will move over toward the photo. I think it's working rather well, I'm just not certain as to the final layout.

  1. C. P. Said,

    Any idea where in Mankato the finish will be? Or is that yet to be determined?


  2. Chris Skogen Said,

    The finish will be close to downtown, but there has not been any final decision.


  3. Anonymous Said,

    Sounds like a great event, and as a Rochesterite I would have loved to do it. Unfortunately, there is already a 300K brevet starting on that day from Walmart North that I am committed to doing instead.


    I am guessing that the brevet crowd would be a good market for your race, but the brevet crowd is preparing for Paris-Brest-Paris and needs to do the 300K listed above to qualify for PBP.

    In the future you may consider coordinating with RASC to make sure that there isn't an overlap of events in the area.


  4. Chris Skogen Said,

    When we picked the date in early January we looked at nearly every schedule we could to find the weekend with the least activity. Unfortunately as the days get warmer, the calendars begin to fill with events. I suppose we could have overlooked the randonneur schedule and should that have been the case, my sincere apologies. I think, though, that this event will take place on or about the same date in the years to come. Good luck with the PBP.


  5. Anonymous Said,

    No apologies needed. It is your event, and you can run it any date and any way you want.

    BTW, are you doing Trans Iowa? I am. :)
