The second annual Electric Climb 2014
It’s time to celebrate. The time for us to get together as ev owners and have fun.
As electric vehicle owners and enthusiasts, we all know how much time we’ve spent educating curious onlookers. Throughout the year, we’ve attended many events, from giving test drives to standing in the sun for hours talking about how we absolutely love our ev.
Last year I organized the Electric Climb. The idea behind it was simply to get together as ev owners and have a day to ourselves. I contacted as many owners as I could, sometimes even leaving notes in windshields, inviting them to my event. We had 14 owners show up, we climbed the highest peak in the Ottawa-Gatineau area, took in the view, then after went out for dinner at a local restaurant. We had a blast.
Since they had such a great time last year, many of the participants asked if there was going to be another Electric Climb this year. The answer is yes !
Here are the details :
Sunday September 21st
Starting point will be at Les Galeries de Hull, 320 Boulevard Saint-Joseph, Gatineau, QC (Lower level parking lot)
Meet and greet between 8am and 10am
Top off your EV using one of 4 AddÉnergie charging stations (arrive early if you need to charge)
We make for the Champlain Lookout, a 22 km climb, at 10am
We meet at the top to take in the view and snap a few pictures
Afterwards Time To Electrify will be hosting the 2nd Electric Party at 1354 Gaultois Ave in Orleans (ON)
Since this is not a sponsored event, we ask everyone to bring their own food and beverages for the day. A BBQ will be available at the Electric Party, bring your folding chairs, bathing suit and inflatable toys for the in ground pool.
I hope to see you all there !
