The East Sussex Cycling Association was formed on 10th
November 1946 at the Ash Tree Inn, Ashburnham. Born out of frustration at the lack of post war racing opportunities for clubs in the area, it was the inspiration of two men, Roy Humphrey of the now disbanded Uckfield and District CC and Eastbourne Rovers' Bill Collins.
As times change and the years roll on, it is testament to the spirit of those confined to fond memory that the ethos of the East Sussex Cycling Association remains the same today as it always was - to provide adequate racing facilities, and bring together all members of clubs in East Sussex in such a way that individual members get to know each other in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere, which can only bring out the best that can be found in the grand cycling game of ours.
