    Located in the front range West of Denver, Mt. Evans Scenic Byway is the highest paved road in North America begging to be assaulted by Tesla owners. With the introduction of this awesome vehicle, I am organizing a Model S & Roadster Road Rally for Saturday June 8, 2013 from Idaho Springs, CO (35 miles west of Denver) to the summit of Mt. Evans and back. The views along the highway are breathtaking, as is the elevation, which summits 14,256 feet above sea level. The spring flowers should be in bloom, as will be an abundance of wildlife, such as Mountain Goats and Bighorn Sheep.

    We need to meet up around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 8th, at the Clear Creek County Middle School parking lot toward the west end of Idaho Springs. This location is South of I-70 at Exit 240. Take the exit; turn South on Highway 103 toward Mt. Evans, and the Middle School driveway is a few hundred feet ahead on the right-hand side immediately past the Ranger Station and Visitor’s Center.

    Please RSVP to Dennis Driscoll at [email protected] (I just need to give the Park Service an estimate of the number of cars to anticipate)

    Here is a flyer about the event with some pretty awesome photos, too.

    See you in June, Dennis

    P.S. - Roadster owners certainly included. After the event we're meeting at Beau Jo's Pizza in Idaho Springs.


    (Mod: please pin to top until after June 8, 2013 - thanks)

    FYI - if anyone is planning to join us June 8 and needs to know where there might be a place to grab some electrons, there is an RV park just a mile from the start area for the event. Plus, if anyone learns of additional charging options, please post the information and/or email me ([email protected]) and I will compile a list of options for distribution before or at the event.

    As of April 5th there are 22 RSVPs for this event, with two out of state owners. Should be fun, hope to double the turnout by June 8th.
