Besides cyclocross bikes, the city style genre of bikes is my bread and butter. These are the bikes that range between $500-1200 and can take someone from an interested and concerned to a triathlon racing momma. The Alysa series from Raleigh is their take on women’s city bikes.

What Raleigh says about the Alysa

Avid cause rider, urban commuter, or merely enjoying leisurely rides with the family, the versatility of the Alysa series is the perfect blend to fulfill your every need.
