We have a busy summer ahead, full of events for Tesla owners and enthusiasts. Please see our Upcoming Events page for a full listing. And please join us at our next meeting on Saturday, May 6th at Paneras where we will finalize some dates and ask Dan to give us a tour in his Ludicrous P100D. I’m sure we can all fit inside…
You may have noticed that we did not have a February gathering for the Club. Our plan is to hold gatherings in March and May, preparing for the multitude of cool events going on in the summer months. Events we will be discussing include the Custer Rally in late May, a June Mount Evans trip, August at Bandimere (to watch Dan’s new Ludicrous P100D), a September Pikes Peak event organized by the CSEVC, and our October Leaf Peeper cruise. There will be many other events going on during the summer, and we will do our best to keep everyone up to date on these.
Please plan on visiting the March event to help with these discussions.

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:
Thanks to a great idea from Elizabeth Nguyen, the Colorado Springs EV Club and Denver Tesla Club joined forces on December 21st to deliver hot lunch to the crews at the Denver Service Center on East Evans. Thanks to everyone who donated funds for the event and to Mac, Wilson, James, Chris, Chris and Elizabeth for being there for the delivery.
“Thanks to everyone who brought us out lunch! We all really appreciate your kindness, as you can see from the pictures attached. I hope everyone has Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!”
-Cameron Pugh at the Service Center
Here are some photos from the event
The Colorado Springs EV Club and Denver EV Club will be having their annual holiday party on Saturday, December 10 at 1:00 pm. Because of this, and due to other scheduling conflicts, we have cancelled our own meeting on December 17th. Please see the Upcoming Events tab for more information.
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!
Eleven Teslas and their owners enjoyed a beautiful August Saturday trip up Mt. Evans Road.
Starting from Clear Creek Middle School, the group made their way up to the top with stops at Echo Lake for the obligatory Tesla Line Up, Summit Lake, and the Summit itself.
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.
The 2017 version should be even better, and we look forward to seeing you all there.
We are starting to see more Model X in the club! Very cool.
Please join the Denver Tesla Club for a tour up beautiful Mt. Evans, located just west of Denver, on Saturday, August 20, 2016! We will meet in Idaho Springs at the Clear Creek Middle School parking lot at 8:30 am and begin our ascent at 9:00 am, due to expected heavy traffic that day. The round trip should take about two hours, and we will meet back in Idaho Springs at Beau Jo’s Pizza for lunch.
Please bring $15 for entrance to Mt. Evans and also for a photo at Echo Lake Park. Also bring a jacket in case of cold weather. It can change quickly at elevation.
We will go rain or shine. You may decide on your own how high you want to go if we have bad weather.
Our meeting place, Clear Creek Middle School, is located at 320 Chicago Creek Road, Idaho Springs, CO. Beau Jo’s is located at 1517 Miner Street, Idaho Springs, CO.
RSVP to Chris at email@example.com.
Thanks to everyone that came to our April gathering. We had a great turnout and great conversations about our favorite car company.
Our next Denver Tesla gathering is Saturday, May 14, 10:00 am, same location (Panera Bread at 2466 S Colorado Blvd). We hope to continue this through the spring and summer.
Topics include: We have a blog! Well, we have a site, and it should be up and running this week. But don’t tell Wilson! Also, Custer, upcoming car events, X deliveries, and the Tesla Owners events at Park Meadows.
