Dusty Demons
Central Australian Rough Riders (Alice Springs MTB Club)

Information for interested families

20 April 2017

We warmly welcome children and their families to come and try Dusty Demons. We are offering 23 sessions this season, even through the winter holidays! We hope to build on last year by adding some basic skill development sessions and improving communication.

What and Who: Dusty Demons is a relaxed fun cycling activity for 3 to 13 year olds.

Why: The objective is to have fun riding a bike with other kids, participate and improve bike handling skills!

When: This year the season will run every Monday from Monday 24th April to Monday 25th September. Sessions start at 4.30pm and finish by 5.30pm.

Where: Dusty Demons is held on a short course dirt track in between the Scout Hall and Larapinta Drive in Alice Springs.

How: The children ride around a short course with little berms and jumps in rough age/ability groups. The program generally includes a few quick laps around the course, a few handicap laps and then the famous lolly race!


·       Bring a functioning bike, helmet and water bottle for hydration.

·       Make a gold coin donation every session to help pay for running costs.

·       The first session is free.

·       From the second session it is expected that your child become a member of Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA). For first time members MTBA offer an 8 week free trial membership and after that a Junior Recreation membership for 3-18 year olds:

o   12 months is $40 ($35 MTBA + $5 club fee)

o   3 months is $25 ($20 MTBA + $5 Club fee).

Click on above link to make your child a member of MTBA.

$100 Sport Vouchers can be used for MTBA membership and include a super cool kids jersey and Dusty Demons bike number plate. Please exchange at the Bicycle Centre Alice Springs on North Stuart Highway.


Communication will be mainly through both CARR Alice Springs MTB Club and Alice Springs Mountain Bike Trails Facebook pages and email so please check them regularly for updates.

We would love some more people to join our team and help with set and pack up, take ‘gold coin donation’, and input new member details into spreadsheet. Please let George, Ben or Anita know if you are interested.
