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 walk?
I walk about 11 miles a week, mainly around the San Rafael downtown area, to get to work, and to run errands and for recreation.

What would help you walk and bike more?
My favorite walk ever was a hike, to the elk reserve, but I donít hike as much as I would like to. If I could find a group of people to go hiking with, it would help me walk and hike more.

Why is walking important to you?
Walking is an ideal form of commuting to and from work, because it provides me with the opportunity to get in shape while commuting, it helps my overall attitude and reduces commute cost!
