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 bike? I bicycle to and from work every day, and about two days a week for pleasure with my husband.
When did you start bicycling? Although I was born in Walnut Creek, I was raised in the Netherlands where I (like many others) bicycled as a primary mode of transportation. I received my very first bicycle from my parents as a young child, and I bought my first brand new bicycle as an adult at the age of 37. Recently I was the lucky winner of a random WalkBikeMarin drawing for a fully-outfitted commuter bicycle.
What is your favorite ride in Marin? My favorite ride is trekking all along the Tiburon peninsula, and finishing in Mill Valley. Riding through China Camp is also great, plus, riding from south Sausalito across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco – there’s nothing more breathtaking.
Why is biking important to Marin County and to you? I think it’s great that the County is creating and promoting a more friendly, safer environment for bicyclists to enjoy their riding experience. My husband and I have Mondays off. One of the coolest things is that we get to take a bike ride together, and see all of the beautiful scenery Marin has to offer – from ocean to mountain views, all at the same time.
