100 degree weather, 1,500 riders, 16 miles and 2 electric cars. Put all of these together and you get the 5th. annual Tour de Queens. While our vehicles have 4 wheels instead of 2, the Mission Electric Leaf and Smart EV had an important job serving as support vehicles for distressed riders. Luckily only a few people required our services- and the majority of them were impressed by the AC even more than the all electric motor.
We thank the folks at Transportation Alternatives for organizing this event, and our friends at Hertz on Demand, for letting us use their cars and show that they can be more fun than just a trip to Ikea.
