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 bike nearly every day. I started biking as a child, and my bike was an early feeling of freedom.

Why do you ride your bike?
Cycling is a great alternative to driving; getting out of the car and into the world is a great way to meet people and enjoy the wonderful beauty of where we live. I just started bike commuting this past year and have never felt better both physically and mentally, and I love the ride.

What are your hopes for cycling in Marin County?
I feel that alternative forms of transportation are critical to keep a healthy Marin county. Since I started riding I have met people that I would have never met in my car. I was amazed how quickly one can get around on a bike. I hope that more people become aware to the benefits of cycling and park their cars and take the bike instead.

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 .
