Craig Craig Parks and Recreation Department's Recreation facilitator Pam Maneotis has seen it before.
For approximately 20 years, Maneotis has orchestrated the "Where the hell is Maybell?" bike ride, and in those 20 years or so, she said not much has changed.
"It's the same bike ride every year from Craig to Maybell," Maneotis said. "The mileage hasn't changed at all. The only thing that's changed, maybe, is participation has grown."
More than 200 riders are expected this year, according to Maneotis, who will trek the 30 miles from Craig to Maybell on Saturday morning.
The ride departs Craig from two locations: Northwest Storage at 7 a.m. and Western Knolls at 7:30 a.m.
There is no entry fee for participants.
Maneotis said the ride is "pretty wide open," and the opportunity to catch a glimpse of wildlife is in abundance.
"Yeah, you can see some deer, elk and maybe some antelope," she said. "It's definitely a family-type event. It's a good way for everybody to finally get outside."
The 30-mile trek isn't a race, but Maneotis said riders shouldn't pick the event as a first-time biking experience.
"You don't necessarily need to have training" for the event, she said. "It's going to take a couple of hours, though. I wouldn't, I guess, pick it as your first bike ride of the year."
The ride finishes in Maybell, and upon arriving, participants can purchase breakfast prepared by the Moffat County Young Life for $5.
Proceeds from the breakfast go to Young Life's summer camping trip.
T-shirts for the event also will be available for $15.
For participants who require a ride back to Craig, a bus will return riders - and their bikes - shortly after the ride is complete.
Seating on the bus is limited, so Maneotis suggests calling in advance to reserve a seat.
Spring season is upon us, and weather permitting, Maneotis said the event always is an enjoyable way for residents to get a taste of the outdoors.
"We mostly use this ride as a season-opener to the biking season," Maneotis said. "Everybody enjoys it. The most exciting thing each year is to see how many people show up."
