Summer in SLC- Time to be outside

Salt Lake City trails and biking. This is a two part question- calling all cyclists/runnings in SLC, Utah- where are your favorite loops to cycle in the summer? I enjoy City Creek and biking through the avenues, but I feel like I am missing some good areas. Second question is about trail running.

1. Can you recommend good loops or routes to me for cycling? I vaguely know of some but recently moved here and want to take my road bike out a little more. I am going to be getting a mountain bike soon for things like the Bonneville Shoreline trail. I'm also a bit scared of scary canyons like Emigration, etc. I'm looking for 1-3 hour loops, and anywhere in SL County or City proper is great. The other day I did City Creek Canyon, looped through the Avenues neighborhood and came down through the University- I loved that. Good climb, good distance, good views.
2. Trail running enthusiasts- where do you go? How did you start? Do you do a couple days of "normal runs" and then do long trail runs at the end of the week? Do you do this in SLC? I really want to get into this activity and know how to jog about 1-4 miles every few days but want to cement it.
Thanks in advance- I love the outdoor recreation in SLC and want more of it!
