Drive Electric Day - the first Saturday in October

On Drive Electrc Day 2008, I shall be on the road in a Berlingo Electrique, which is a lovely electric van made by Citroen.

It does about 60 miles on a single charge, and we tend to charge it up overnight by running the lead into the house and plugging it in to a standard socket.  It will happily travel on the motorway, with a top speed of about 70mph, so we have no problem cruising along in the left-hand or middle lane.  It has loads of room in the back, for cargo/children, and we love it.

So, if you are in the Altrincham/Cheshire area on Sat 4th October this year, look out for a white van on the roads with me in it.  We'll be setting out from the Romper pub at 11.30am, returning around 12noonish for lunch.  And we have got the pub's agreement to offer charging facilities.

This trip is part of a north-west social meet-up I am organising.  Everyone welome:

Best wishes to everyone else who will be out and about that day!

Mary.

I don't have a Live Journal account...

...so I can't do a separate post to say what I am up to, so I thought I'd comment here. Good luck with the event. I think it is a great idea and I hope everyone will do it!

I'll be out and about on my electric bicycle.
