Thousands of motorcyclists plan to ride through Newtown this weekend to raise money for those affected by the shootings in December at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Organizers said about 3,000 people were expected to participate in Sunday’s Green Ribbon Ride, which was to start in Shelton and end in Trumbull. Several Newtown streets will be closed as the bikers make their way through between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The money raised in the charity ride is slated to go to several charities, including the Sandy Hook Family Healing Fund, Newtown Police Union, and Newtown’s volunteer fire companies.
