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.

WalkBike Profile: Linda Ojeda, Sausalito
Occupation: Nutritionist, author, and speaker
How long have you been walking in Sausalito? 16 years. After we felt settled, it was one of the first things I did. Why do you walk? Let me count the ways! I walk because I cannot run. I jogged for about 20 years and then when my body told me it was time to stop, I did the next best thing. I walked. When I walk I release anxiety, solve problems, and pray for guidance. Itís great therapy. I love to experience nature, the flowers, the deer, the seal lions, the fog over the bay. Each day brings something new and exciting for which Iím thankful. I love the community feeling of bumping into friends and acquaintances on my walks, even though sometimes Iím late for other events. I would hate to miss out on my chance meetings.
What kind of trips do you make?
My daily routine is to walk for about an hour and a half up and down the hills. Sometimes I throw in steps and change my direction or explore new streets. I always end up by the water. Occasionally, I will go on hikes with friends to Muir Woods or up to Mount Tam. There are endless numbers of interesting trails.
