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.

Why do you ride your bike?
I like the idea that I am reducing the number of cars on the road, especially during commute times. But I also enjoy riding. It refreshes me and keeps me in shape.

How long have you been a cyclist? What got you started?
Iíve ridden all my life. After high school, I toured around Europe for a year on bicycle. In college I did not drive a car. I took up mountain biking because I love being in the mountains and Marin is mountain bike heaven. My friends got me into road riding and training for century rides.

Why do you think bicycling is important to Marin County?
Marin County has committed itself to a target of 15-20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, and transportation accounts for 50% of greenhouse gas emissions. Yuba is committed to helping Marin County reach this target by providing sustainable transportation via its Mundo cargo bikes.
