Two Sundays ago, I saw that the cafe at Big Meadows was closing the next day, for the season. I had been on the Skyline Drive on my electric assist cargo bike, and in the Bolt this year, but the cafe was closed for remodeling until the end of August. I figured this was an excuse to use my lifetime seniors pass. I drove the speed limit up Rt 250 to the south entrance to the Drive. It was 50 miles, and 1444 feet of net climbing to this point. The mile/kWh was just under 4. I headed up the Drive with cruise control set to 35 mph...the speed limit on this beautiful road. I had to drop out of cruise twice for deer in the road. Only two cars passed me in the 55 miles to the cafe. The second was a Mustang that downshifted and roared up each climb, and rode the brakes down each decent, but never got out of view until I reached the cafe. I never touched the brake pedal on my entire drive. At the cafe, the miles/kWh had climbed to 4.8, despite a 1680 feet net elevation gain. After looking around at several Teslas at the cafe, and buying a cup of coffee, I headed for home. I drove 14.5 miles back south to the Rt 33 crossing, and then Rt 33 east, another 46 miles to home. The net decent from Big Meadows to home was 3117 feet, and my miles/kWh was over 6.
