A day on a Raleigh Roadster is quite different then any other bicycle experience. Rolling along, head up, you will feel the difference in less time then you may expect.
The view from a Raleigh is higher. A better view makes for a better ride and a better day.
New England is loaded with history and scenery that has not changed in years.
I once read about the feeling that a Civil War reenactor would get, dressed in all wool and accessorized with everything down to the silver coins in their pockets and the correct time piece on the correct chain. Its called a "Civil War Moment" A complete shift back in time. When everything is the same including the view, there is nothing holding you to today. Jack Finney in his book, "Time and Again" wrote about this.
I love finding new, old places. For a sit and a view. The Raleigh fits so well. Other people notice. Smiles from strangers are always good!
The Roadster is a go anywhere machine. Good off road as well as on. We are so lucky to have so many old roads to explore here in the Boston area. Its possible to find byways that have not changed in 300 years.
The Raleigh rides well and rids you of problems. Sit back and enjoy the view.
