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.

I commute 4 times per week and ride recreationally 2-3 times per week
Where are your favorite places to bike?
My favorite road rides are the Saturday morning group ride around the Nicassio Reservoir, through Pt. Reyes station and back through Samuel P. Taylor.
Why do you ride your bike?
I love to ride because it is good for my spirit. I feel healthier and happier when I ride my bike. Also, all my friends ride bikes so it is a great way to keep in touch and get in some important male bonding time.
Why do you think biking is important to Marin County?
Living in Marin County, one would be crazy not to ride a bike. There is no better way to enjoy and explore the natural beauty here, than to get on a bike and start pedaling.
