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 walk more in the rainy season, but usually about 5 miles a week for errands, and 5 to 14 miles for hikes. I bike every day, and about 75 miles on the weekend for recreation.

What is the best bike ride you’ve ever done in Marin? My best ride ever was on my tandem with my wife Molly from our marriage in Woodacre to our reception in Fairfax.

Why is walking and biking important to you?
When I bike or hike I am a better person. I see, smell hear, and feel things that I miss wrapped up in a car.

What would you like to see happen for cycling in Marin County?
Riders should greet each other and watch out for each other. There will always be someone faster than you—so take time to say hello, advocate for bikes, adopt a trail.
