For the past 20 years, Moraga residents Bobbie and Tom Preston have been collecting repairable bikes to be refurbished and given to charitable groups to distribute at Christmas as part of Cycle Recycle. To date over 3,300 bikes have been collected. This year the recipient organizations include Oakland International High School's Earn-A-Bike program, Marsh Creek Detention Center (which repairs and provide bikes to various Contra Costa County charitable programs as Christmas gifts for low-income kids), and Trips for Kids in Marin (which repairs bikes for their Christmas giveaway to children of needy families).
New and/or used bikes and trikes - in working order or repairable - or useable bike parts may be delivered to the side driveway of the Preston's home at 1307 Larch Avenue in Moraga throughout the month of November only. No skateboards or plastic bikes please; no need to call beforehand, but for more information contact the Prestons at (925) 376-8474.
