WalkBikeMarin is an initiative by the County of Marin to help make Marin more healthy, livable, and environmentally sustainable by encouraging walking and bicycling as everyday transportation. This initiative was catalyzed by a recent $25 million federal grant to fund the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP). The goal of the WalkBikeMarin website is to provide information about all the County’s bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs in one place. For more information on the NTPP see the About the Project page.

How often do you bike?
I commute 4 times per week and ride recreationally 2-3 times per week

Where are your favorite places to bike?
My favorite road rides are the Saturday morning group ride around the Nicassio Reservoir, through Pt. Reyes station and back through Samuel P. Taylor.

Why do you ride your bike?
I love to ride because it is good for my spirit. I feel healthier and happier when I ride my bike. Also, all my friends ride bikes so it is a great way to keep in touch and get in some important male bonding time.

Why do you think biking is important to Marin County?
Living in Marin County, one would be crazy not to ride a bike. There is no better way to enjoy and explore the natural beauty here, than to get on a bike and start pedaling.

What's New

 

WHITES HILL IMPROVEMENTS June, 2020 ~ Sir Francis Drake Boulevard has been repaved between the Brown Bridge and Fairfax town limits.  There is now a continuous bike lane in the westbound/uphill direction and the roadway was widened to provide an eastbound bike lane starting at the bottom of the hill.  A high-friction paving material was applied in the downhill direction to improve traction through the curves, especially for when the road is wet.

TIPS FOR NEW AND RETURNING CYCLISTS April, 2019 ~ WalkBikeMarin in partnership with Marin County Bicycle Coalition has prepared an informational page with tips for first-time or it's-been-a-while-since cyclists to get your ride going in the right direction.  

2018 UNINCORPORATED AREA BICYCLE/ PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN ADOPTED February, 2018 ~ The 2018 Marin County Unincorporated Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on February 27.  The document can be viewed and downloaded from the Plan web page at http://walkbikemarin.org/resource_library_policies.php .  The Plan page also has additional information about bicycle and pedestrian plans, including those of other communities in Marin.
