Loveland and Brush Superchargers now open!

Late breaking news:  Tesla just managed to open both new superchargers in Colorado before the end of the year.  Loveland opened earlier this last week, and Brush came on line yesterday.  Whew!

Here are some photos I stole from the CSEVC site of the Loveland Supercharger, courtesy of Steve Z and Stephanie Buchholtz:

October Aspen Leaf Tour

Join us for our Aspen Leaf Peeping Drive!  Co-sponsored by the Denver Tesla Club and the Colorado Springs EV Club.  We will meet at the Park Meadows Mall Supercharger location in Lone Tree at 10:00 am to allow those coming in from Colorado Springs to charge up.  We will finish at the Colorado Springs Supercharger after a leisurely drive in the foothills between Denver and Colorado Springs.

Here is Mac’s description:  “Whenever we are ready, sometime after 10AM, we set out on the following route:  Deer Creek Road to Hwy 285 to Pine Valley Rd, to Pine, CO.  From there, the Deckers Road (126), to Deckers.  Then onto Hwy 67 all the way to Woodland Park.  This is about seventy miles driving through the Pike National Forest, stopping occasionally for scenic views and photos!  Then down Hwy 24 and into Colorado Springs.  In Colorado Springs, the Northern contingent, (those from the Denver area), needing a charge before going home can plug in at the CS Supercharger, while we ALL go for a late lunch in downtown Colorado Springs.  The total trip is 109 miles.  Add to that the miles needed to get to Lone Tree, before the event, or to drive from Colorado Springs back home, after.”

See you there!

2016 Mt. Evans Trip a resounding success!

 

Eleven Teslas and their owners enjoyed a beautiful August Saturday trip up Mt. Evans Road.  Starting from Clear Creek Middle School, IMG_0105the group made their way up to the top with stops at Echo Lake for the obligatory Telsa Line Up,IMG_0131 Summit Lake, and the Summit itself. IMG_0300 After a short respite at a frigid summit, the group made its way down to BeauJo’s Pizza in Idaho Springs for an early lunch.  It was a fantastic day, with great weather, great conversation, and incredible views.  IMG_0197.JPGP1090227.jpg

The 2017 version should be even better, and we look forward to seeing you all there.
