Thousands of motorcyclists rode from Norwalk to Bridgeport in Connecticut’s largest tribute to 9/11. It’s called the Connecticut United Ride, and Sunday marked thirteen years of riding for the cause.

“It’s a 60 mile ride, police escort the whole way, we go through ten towns in the State of Connecticut,” says Brian Garrity. “The first one was done two weeks after 9/11. It was done for charity, all the money was donated to the 9/11 foundation and ever since we’ve donated the money to the firefighters and police departments throughout the State of Connecticut.”

Garrity says more than 2,000 motorcyclists participate annually, and this year was no different.

“All the people come out and wave and cheer on the riders and the police departments and fire departments in all the different towns we go to put their ladder trucks out with the American Flag,” says Garrity.
