Electric vehicle owners, grab a partner and compete in Drive Electric RVA's second annual road rally for EVs. Rally participants will travel primarily along US-1 from the GreenFare Organic Cafe in Herndon to the Origin Beer Lab in Ashland, a total of 90 miles (give or take a few).
If you arrive early at the start, you can join the Northern Virginia Electric Car Owners meetup group from 12:30 to 2:30 PM to enjoy the cafe's organic, whole food offerings and hear a presentation from the owner, Gwyn Whittaker. If you stick around at the end, you can enjoy the microbrews offered in small batches at the Beer Lab, which is an offshoot of Center of the Universe Brewing.
Each team (consisting of a driver and navigator) will have to use their smarts to locate visual checkpoints and manage the range of their EV. Charging stations are available along the route. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers.
Registration fee is $10 and non-refundable. Event is rain or shine.
