MORAGA -- For the 16th year, Bobbie and Tom Preston of Moraga will hold their "Cycle Recycle" event, collecting repairable bikes to be refurbished and given to charitable groups to distribute at Christmas.

Over Cycle Recycle's first 15 years, more than 2,200 bikes have been collected for repair by the inmates at the Marsh Creek Detention Center. The repaired and refurbished bikes then go to the Cambridge Community Center in Concord and other Contra Costa County charitable programs, and for repair by San Rafael-based Trips for Kids, which provides measures to instill self-confidence, environmental awareness and healthy habits in disadvantaged youth by having fun on mountain bikes.

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 Ave. in Moraga throughout the month of November. No skateboards, please.

There's no need to call before dropping of a bike. For more information, contact Bobbie or Tom Preston at 925-376-8474.
