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 walk and bike?
I bike commute 3 or 4 times a week, and I try to walk every day, especially in the summer and spring.

Where are your favorite places to ride a bike?
My commute (the Mill Valley bike path) is beautiful. It's like biking through a Monet or a Van Gogh.

What do you enjoy about walking and biking?
Biking and walking are what make Marin special; few other places have the infrastructure and views that our bike paths have. You just don't see nature the same way from a car...

What would help you walk and bike more?
Overpasses over roads like Tiburon Blvd would really help. I'm trying to increase kids walking and biking to school and the main reason people don't let their kids do that is the danger of crossing a major thoroughfare.

CONSTRUCTION DETOURS ON UPPER CORTE MADERA CREEK PATH June, 2016 ~ Two projects to improve the upper Corte Madera Creek path are in the works this summer.  College of Marin has repaved the portion of the path on their campus in conjunction with their campus improvement project.  On June 13 the County began reconstructing its portion of the path between College of Marin and the Kentfield Rehabilitation Hospital bridge.  The path will be widened and vegetation modified to improve visibility and safety on this popular path.  The detour around this area is Kent/Poplar Avenues between Kentfield and Ross.
