On Sunday September 11 , 2022 , the CT United Ride will travel through nine area towns , including Westport , to pay tribute to the victims and first responders of the September 11 , 2001 , terrorist attacks on the United States . The event is Connecticut’s largest annual 9/11 tribute as well as the largest motorcycle ride in the state .
The motorcade will continue to use the route established last year which starts at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport at approximately 11:30 am and continues through We......stport into Wilton , Redding , Bethel , Newtown , Monroe , Trumbull , and Fairfield; ending at Seaside Park in Bridgeport .
The procession travels from Sherwood Island State Park onto the Sherwood Island Connector where the riders will then take Interstate 95 southbound from Exit 18 to Exit 17 . The procession will then travel north up Saugatuck Avenue ( Route 136 ) from Exit 17 , continue north on to Riverside Avenue ( Route 33 ) to Wilton Road , and across the Wilton town line . The route is closed and continuous , meaning that with the assistance of a police escort the participating motorcyclists drive through traffic lights and do not stop at stop signs .
Motorists should anticipate extended traffic delays along the procession’s route which could potentially last 45 minutes or longer . Although delays are to be expected please be mindful of those we lost over 20 years ago , as well as their families who are with us today , as it certainly is a day for remembrance and reflection .
It is recommended that wherever possible alternate routes should be sought to avoid these areas as they will be rendered completely impassable until the entire procession clears .
