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?
Every day, about 50 miles per week.

Why do you ride your bike?
I try to never drive, on principle. I believe in alternative transportation, and I simply enjoy cycling. Last year I drove 182 miles. Cycling is good for one’s physical health, and for the health of the environment.

Where is your favorite place to bicycle?
Anywhere the traffic is not too bad. I like the varied athletic requirements of cycling, i.e. uphill and    down, curves, wind before or behind, gear shifting, balancing, etc. Fun!

Why do you think biking is important to Marin County?

Cars, little prisons of metal and glass, isolate. When you’re on a bike, how much easier it is to share a smile, or to stop and chat! The more we can interact, face-to-face with our neighbors, the greater our understanding of one another, and the greater the likelihood we can work together to solve future challenges.
