Several hundred riders, supporters and volunteers gathered in Greenport’s Mitchell Park Saturday morning for the North Fork’s Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride.

The 15, 30 or 60-mile ride is part of a three-day rehabilitative event that includes bike fittings for warriors, an alumni ride and a picnic. The finish line for the rides is the Greenport Skate Park.

The ride is dedicated to Shelter Island native Lt. Joseph Theinert, who was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan on June 4, 2010.
