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.

What's New

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 .  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.  



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.
