    how do I find Bobsled?

    I've never been to Bobsled but hear its a blast. seems like a good run to pop the cherry on my new Demo.

    is it a shuttle run or am in for a "push my bike hike"?

    me and possibly 2 others are wanting to do it sunday morning if anyone wants to join

    There's no way to shuttle it but its not a difficult ride to the top. The best route IMO is up dry gulch. Directions are here: http://www.utahmountainbiking.com/trails/bobsled.htm

    On a demo that ride up dry creek is gonna be lame. If you want to shuttle, there's still climbing but it's not as bad as going up dry creek. For big bikes the best way is to drive north up the hill off 11th ave on terrace hills drive - leave a car at the park on your left. Drive the other to the top, it dead ends in a culdesac where someone is building a huge house. There's a gated doubletrack to the NE that you go up. Take a right at the top, then stay on the main trail - there's a fork to the right, don't take that. Go up some more, you'll come to sort of a 4 way intersection. You can enter bobsled there, but if you go another quarter mile or so there's a better entrance. You'll know it cause there's a bench uphill from the trail courtesy of the FLBS. When you get to the bottom take a right on the pavement and that'll take you back to terrace hills drive, just above the park.

    Yeah . . what Zak said - you don't want to pedal a Demo uphill . . especially up dry creek OR City Creek. Honestly you really don't even need a demo for the downhill . . you're enduro would work great as it's mostly a buffed out trail . . that way you'd enjoy riding it as a loop. Of course being a Demo owner I know that you can never go wrong on one once it's pointed down!
