There’s a lot to love about the great outdoors. The salty sea air, the warm summer breeze, the fat, fluffy clouds. From sunny picnics to late-night swims, this dreamy vintage bike lets you rediscover the natural world – from the best seat in the house. Grab a polaroid camera, fill the basket with a baguette and some brie, and start exploring.
Inspired by over 130 years of classic British design, the Willow blends modern components with a timeless retro look you’ll fall head over heels for. In a throwback to Raleigh’s roots, the lightweight frame features graphics inspired by our humble beginnings in Nottingham, coated in a protective lacquer to keep your bike in tip-top condition. And with a roomy wicker-style basket, you’ve got oodles of room for your essentials – whether that’s beer, grub or a tiny pooch.
Aside from its classic vintage features, the Willow has all the fixings of a cracking bike. The classic aluminium frame has a relaxed geometry for an upright, easy ride, with additions like a Selle Royal saddle and soft detailed grips keeping you comfy on those longer journeys. The 7-speed derailleur gears make getting up slopes a doddle, while colour-coordinated mudguards keep your clothes dry on rainy days. Finished with a handy kickstand and a traditional ding-dong bell, this classic town bike has everything you need to get out and about in style.
Looking to match your hallway decor? From pink to bronze, the Willow comes in an array of minimal, nature-inspired colour schemes. For a truly Instagrammable aesthetic, add some fresh flowers to the basket. BEAUTIFUL.

Customer Reviews of Les's Cycles
Les’s Cycles has to be the best cycle shop in Essex. All the staff are friendly and helpful.
A small store from the outside but an Aladdin’s cave on the inside.
Not at all pushy like big chains.
Will not be going anywhere else from now on
Thank you Les’s CyclesGoogle Reviews
Just got my e bike sorted by Les Cycles. They were brilliant. My bike is under warranty and the manufacturer wasn’t very helpful at all. Despite this Les Cycles persisted and managed to eventually get the part needed. They fixed it all up and now I’m happily cycling again. Would definitely recommend them. The after care they give is truly first class.Google Reviews
The best bike shop by far.
Order a bike late on a Saturday (11:30pm) and by 11am the next day it was built and ready for me to collect.
The staff were more than happy to spend time explaining all about my new ebike, never had one so I had alot of questions.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.Google Reviews
