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

 

WHITES HILL IMPROVEMENTS June, 2020 ~ Sir Francis Drake Boulevard has been repaved between the Brown Bridge and Fairfax town limits.  There is now a continuous bike lane in the westbound/uphill direction and the roadway was widened to provide an eastbound bike lane starting at the bottom of the hill.  A high-friction paving material was applied in the downhill direction to improve traction through the curves, especially for when the road is wet.

TIPS FOR NEW AND RETURNING CYCLISTS April, 2019 ~ WalkBikeMarin in partnership with Marin County Bicycle Coalition has prepared an informational page with tips for first-time or it's-been-a-while-since cyclists to get your ride going in the right direction.  

2018 UNINCORPORATED AREA BICYCLE/ PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN ADOPTED February, 2018 ~ The 2018 Marin County Unincorporated Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on February 27.  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.
