Choppers flew down Main Street during the CT United Ride at the intersection of Main and Quality. The 15th annual bike ride, which took place two weeks earlier than usual this year, drew motorcyclists from all over Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, and as far south as Maryland Sunday, Aug. 30. More than 4,000 participated in the 60-mile ride, making it the largest Sept. 11 tribute in Connecticut, and the largest single charity ride in New England. — Lisa Romanchick photos
