One event that Craig Parks & Rec is still planning on having is the “Where the Hell is Maybell” kickoff this Saturday. It’s the cycling event from Craig to Maybell. It’s the 34th year for the ride which is an annual favorite. It’s about 30 miles. You don’t have to be a strong bike rider for the event. Just ride along at your own speed and enjoy the Moffat County landscape. There won’t be any shuttles back from Maybell this year. Contact Craig Parks & Rec to sign up for the event. You’ll get a t-shirt with admission.
Moffat County Sheriff’s Officers are looking for a stolen UTV from the Maybell area. It’s a 2015 Can-Am 1000cc with pink seat covers.
