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 almost every day and go for longer rides on weekends... about 60 miles per week in the winter and up to 200 miles per week in the summer.

Where do you go on your bicycle?

With my wife and daughter, just about anywhere in Marin or Napa counties.  If I’m out by myself, I love the Marin/Sonoma coast, spring in the foothills around Grass Valley and Nevada City, and just about anywhere in Oregon. One of my favorite rides was the mid 70s Marin double metric century that started at the Marin Civic Center and traveled into West Marin and the southern part of Sonoma county.

Why do you ride your bicycle?
I bike for the sheer joy of it and the Zen-like experience of the pedaling rhythm. The people of Marin County have worked hard to preserve an abundance of open space so that we all can touch, feel, see, hear and be in nature.

What's New

 

WHITES HILL IMPROVEMENTS June, 2020 ~ Sir Francis Drake Boulevard has been repaved between the Brown Bridge and Fairfax town limits.  There is now a continuous bike lane in the westbound/uphill direction and the roadway was widened to provide an eastbound bike lane starting at the bottom of the hill.  A high-friction paving material was applied in the downhill direction to improve traction through the curves, especially for when the road is wet.

TIPS FOR NEW AND RETURNING CYCLISTS April, 2019 ~ WalkBikeMarin in partnership with Marin County Bicycle Coalition has prepared an informational page with tips for first-time or it's-been-a-while-since cyclists to get your ride going in the right direction.  

2018 UNINCORPORATED AREA BICYCLE/ PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN ADOPTED February, 2018 ~ The 2018 Marin County Unincorporated Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on February 27.  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.
