About

Rawland Cycles was founded in 2007 by Sean and Anna Virnig in prime Minnesota gravel country, with a focus on adventure by bike, exploring backroads and trails, and pushing the boundaries of cycling. We were among the very first to design all-road bikes around the revived 650B/27.5" wheel size, with clearances for fatter tires, and we continue to pursue our vision for a given model regardless of what others are doing. Our bikes can take you from pavement to gravel, fire roads, singletrack, and beyond seamlessly, whether you’re after a quick ramble, a weekend wilderness adventure, or months of two-wheeled exploration. It’s how all of us at Rawland have ridden since we were kids, and we’re on a quest to give riders everywhere smart, fun, unique bikes for this kind of experiential cycling. It’s not about miles so much as time and space, you and your machine, and possibility. Rawland is now headquartered outside San Francisco at the base of Mount Diablo, a perfect testing ground for bikes and a great launchpad for cycling adventures. Skål!
