The next Ride & Drive event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 7, at the Howelsen Hill Rodeo Grounds.

During the event, a handful of electric vehicles will be available to test drive, including a Ford MachE (Mustang), Chevy Volt, Jeep Rubicon 4xE, Tesla Model Y and Ford Lightning F150. In addition, local EV owners will have a chance to show off their personal vehicles, including a Rivian SUV, as part of the show-n-shine event.
