The trip will kick off in Charleston, S.C. and will come to a stop at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. Travelers plan to visit 43 cities to recharge and build publicity on route to the west coast, according to the Christian Science Monitor.

 “How inspiring would it be to make history together on our electric vehicles while ushering in a new era and a new way of clean living on our Planet Earth,” wrote Ride the Future founder Susan Jones in a Huffington Post column about the event.

Jones aims to bring attention to her message by breaking several Guinness World Records on the trip. Among the titles up for dispute: “longest journey on an electric scooter,” “longest journey on an electric motorcycle” and "longest journey in an electric car.”

Event organizers also plan to produce a documentary chronicling the tour.
