About 4,000 motorcyclists revved up for what Gov. Dannel Malloy calls the state's largest annual Sept. 11 tribute, the CT United Ride.
The bikers met in Norwalk early Sunday to join a police and firefighter escort through Wilton, Redding and Fairfield to the final destination in Bridgeport. They say the ride is to pay respects to the thousands of people killed in terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
The event is now in its 14th year. The first ride was less than a month after the attacks.
Organizers say they will donate money raised Sunday toward family emergency relief funds for Connecticut police officers and firefighters, as well was to local United Way organizations.
