After Sept. 11, 2001, Americans promised to never forget and no place is that more clear in Connecticut than at the annual CT United Ride, which started in 2001 as a tribute and fund-raiser for first responders in New York City.
What started as a charity ride with 500 motorcyclists has grown each year, with 4,000 riders expected this Sunday, Sept. 7. It has been called by Gov. Dannel Malloy the largest 9/11 tribute in the state and is the largest charity motorcycle ride in New England. The ride now raises money for first responders and the United Way in Connecticut.
