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: Maureen Gaffney, Fairfax
Maureen Gaffney photoHow often do you walk and bike?
I walk every day (10 miles per week), and I bike about 60 miles a week as well.

Why do you walk and bike?
I started biking when I was a kid, so I could get where I wanted to go, and I haven’t stopped since. I bike and walk for recreation, commuting, shopping….and, of course, walking the dog.

What would help you walk and bike more?
If I could spend less time working and commuting, I would walk and bike more. I also wish we had a bike path on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge and better pavement between Fairfax and San Anselmo.

Why are walking and biking important to you?
Walking and biking are the best possible ways to experience the magical landscapes of Marin County. If one is going to pay this much to live here, it’s best to enjoy all that it offers!
