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

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 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. 

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.
