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, run and ride your bicycle?
I ride my bike six to seven times a week, 20-75 miles a day. I run five times per week, 5-10 miles a day. Three times a week I walk to and from my swimming club.

Where are your favorite places to walk, run and ride a bicycle in Marin?
I'd love to take a date hiking up Horse Hill sometime - it's right by where I live and it is gorgeous at all times of day. Camino Alto, Blithedale Summit, and Kite Hill are pretty fantastic for running as well. When it comes to bicycling, I love biking up Mt Tam, Alpine Dam, and Bolinas-Fairfax.

Why are walking, running and bicycling important to you?
Biking and walking are healthy, energizing activities which are good for the environment and your physical and mental health. Marin County offers so much scenic beauty, great weather, and a multitude of amazing, trails, fire roads, and roads for hiking and biking that it would be absolutely senseless to pass it up.
