The closing rally at the food pantry capped a six-day tour through Connecticut by about 20 cyclists to raise awareness of poverty. Father Stephen Sledesky, Pastor of St. Bridget Parish in Manchester, is a longtime rider with Brake the Cycle. The group’s first ride was to Washington, D.C., in 2003. (Photo by Jack Sheedy)
