The club's unusual name goes back to when the club was founded in 1922 . The founder members had returned from serving in the forces during the 1914 - 1918 war.
THE EARLY YEARS
The first activities were club runs on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, with the first races being club time trials in 1924. The club was one of the founder members of the Kent Cycling Association in 1928 and enjoyed considerable success in both individual and team championships. The club's current Mens Best Allrounder trophy was originally a KCA team trophy that SFA members won outright.
Between 1939 and 1945 National Service and wartime restrictions curtailed many club activities but Arthur Goodhew kept the Saturday clubruns going.
