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?
Usually 5 days a week, about 50-70 off road miles, and about 30-40 road miles commuting to meeting in San Francisco and around Marin.

When and why did you start riding a bike regularly?
About 8 years, I needed to get in shape and lose weight so I started to commute to San Francisco on my road bike. Over a couple of years I lost about 50 pounds, and along the way I fell in love with cycling and mountain biking.

What are your reasons for bicycling?
Mountain Biking provides me with the opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous Marin outdoors, exercise and experience the adrenaline rush when riding challenging singletracks. After a good mountain bike ride I am relaxed, filled with joy and love for life.

What would help you to bike more often?
Opening all the old train system tunnels in Marin so there is a flat way separated from cars to road ride from Sausalito all the way to Novato. And opening more off-road singletrack trails, in particular in Mt. Tam where all singletracks but one (Coastal View trail) are closed to bikes.

DRAFT UNINCORPORATED AREA BICYCLE/PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN RELEASED November, 2017 ~ The Draft Marin County Unincorporated Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is now available for review.  The document can be viewed and downloaded from the Plan web page at http://walkbikemarin.org/resource_library_policies.php .  The Plan page also has additional information about bicycle and pedestrian plans, including those of other communities in Marin. 

MILL VALLEY-SAUSALITO PATH REPAVING October, 2017 ~ The northern two segments of the Mill Valley-Sausalito path have been repaved.  Other than spot repairs, the path had not been resurfaced since its construction in 1982 so the new pavement is a major improvement.  The segment between E. Blithedale to Vasco Court was completed over the summer and the segment between E. Blithedale and Almonte Blvd. was completed in September.  The third segment, between Almonte Blvd. and Gate Six Road is not funded at this time but various potential funding options are being considered.
