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 to work 3-5 times a week, and try to do an additional recreational ride on the weekends.

When did you start riding a bike regularly?
I started riding an extra small “ten speed” style bike when I was about 8 years old. After that I biked to school. In high school, my dad was part of a group of carpool parents, and I would sometimes race him when he drove my friends to school.

What are your reasons for bicycling?
I love the freedom and exercise I get when I ride. Sometimes I do a lot of thinking when I ride, and other times I think of nothing. Either way, I enjoy it. My wife and I do a lot of tandem bike riding which allows us to actually talk the entire time we ride with out having to share a lane. It’s a great way to spend time together. Also, I love doing errands on my bike and avoiding all the traffic and parking hassles than come with driving.

Why is biking important to Marin County and to you?
It’s nice knowing that you feel better arriving at your destination than you did when you left to get there. Marin is one of the most beautiful places to ride in the world!

What's New

MILL VALLEY-SAUSALITO PATH REPAVING August, 2017 ~ Marin County is repaving two segments of the Mill Valley-Sausalito path.  Other than spot repairs, the path has not been resurfaced since its construction in 1982.  The segment between E. Blithedale to Vasco Court was recently completed, just in time for the new school year.  The segment between E. Blithedale and Almonte Blvd. is scheduled for this fall and will necessitate closure of the path during much of the construction period; detours and alternate routes will be provided.  The segment between Almonte Blvd. and Gate Six Road is not funded at this time.  

NEW BIKE BOX FOR TIBURON BOULEVARD INTERSECTION December,2016 ~ To improve safety for users of the Tiburon Boulevard and Greenwood Cove/Blackfield intersection in Tiburon, Marin's first "bike box" has been installed in conjunction with several other intersection improvements.  The project was a partnership between the County, Tiburon, and Caltrans, providing better and safer connections across Tiburon Boulevard (State Highway 131) between the neighborhoods on the north side, including Bel Aire school, with the east-west bicycle and pedestrian connector route for the Tiburon peninsula.  More information on the bike box project and how a bike box works is available here . 



June, 2014 ~ The final report analyzing the outcomes of the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program has been released.  It shows that bicycling and walking have increased by 65.5% and 19.9%, respectively, since 2007.  Get more information on the NTPP's outcomes by dowloading the full report.
