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 ride your bicycle? I bike about 5 to 10 miles a day, for commuting and errands.

What would help you bike more often?

Now I ride primarily with my 8 year old who has become very ‘share the road’ savvy, and my 5 year old who is two-wheelin’ with a wobble. We would be more likely to ride more often and farther if there were more routes and lanes designated for bikers, and a little less aggression from hurrying drivers who see us as an obstacle at best.

Why do you love riding your bike?
I am reminded that we all share the air and the streets of town and are members of communities when I ride my bike. You can see people smile when you aren’t separated by tinted windows. In this busy time, a wave and a smile go miles toward helping communities feel more connected.
