4th of July morning ride

We are thinking of doing a Saturday 9am ride on the 4th of July. The plan is either Emigration Canyon in SLC or Hobble Creek Canyon in Springville. We thought that Emigration Canyon might be fun because we had not done it with the team. But either way, we want to ride Saturday morning. Mason asked me to post this up here on the blog so that we can get a good idea of who can come and what ride people would prefer. So, when you see this post up a comment with your preference, and the majority will rule.
The Hobble Creek ride will be the same as before. We will meet at Campus in the parking lot at the top of the hill (across form the Computer Sci. Building where we were meeting for Saturday rides in the spring). The ride will go down Orem Main Street to 8th north Provo and then out to Utah Lake. We then turn East and back across Provo toward Springville. Ride up and down the canyon and return via the Provo foothills and 9th East to 8th south Orem and back to campus (I think this was 50-55 miles last time we rode it).
The Emigration Ride will meet just south of the SLC Hogle Zoo parking lot on Sunnyside Ave. and go up Emigration, down toward Parley's Canyon from the summit and then turn left on highway 65 and go up to the Big Mountain summit (about 5 more miles up highway 65).

Donjuan Votes for Emigration Canyon.

My vote is Hobble creek. Too much going on that day to go to SL and back and still make it to the family stuff.

I am down with Emigration. Ben Rabner (Contender rider who just cut his hair)called me and asked if anyone would want to do the Nebo loop with him and some of his friends. I suggest we do Emigration Canyon as the UVU club ride, but if anyone wants to stay in Utah county you can ride with Ben. His number is (801) 592-8320.

After the Fitchburg classic (were team Kelly Benefits competed) over the July 4th weekend I had the pleasure of going for a ride with Reid Mumford the next day...was pretty cool to ride with a pro that was in Spuik stuff and I was wearing the Kelly helmut....Funny but their big engine is 6'3" 170lbs...I feel fat.
