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.
