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, and why?
I commute to work and mountain bike for recreation. I bike to work every day, either on trails or on the road. Itís only about 6 miles a day on the road, but on trails itís about 12. My favorite place to bike is either China Camp or Mount Tam.

How long have you been a cyclist?
Iíve been riding a bike since I was a kid and mountain biking for about 15 years.

What do you like about biking?
I enjoy mountain biking because I get a great rush from being in nature, going fast, and working hard all at once.
