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.

WalkBike Profile: Maureen Gaffney, Fairfax
Maureen Gaffney photoHow often do you walk and bike?
I walk every day (10 miles per week), and I bike about 60 miles a week as well.

Why do you walk and bike?
I started biking when I was a kid, so I could get where I wanted to go, and I haven’t stopped since. I bike and walk for recreation, commuting, shopping….and, of course, walking the dog.

What would help you walk and bike more?
If I could spend less time working and commuting, I would walk and bike more. I also wish we had a bike path on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge and better pavement between Fairfax and San Anselmo.

Why are walking and biking important to you?
Walking and biking are the best possible ways to experience the magical landscapes of Marin County. If one is going to pay this much to live here, it’s best to enjoy all that it offers!

What's New

NEW BIKE BOX FOR TIBURON BOULEVARD INTERSECTION December,2016 ~ To improve safety for users of the Tiburon Boulevard and Greenwood Cove/Blackfield intersection in Tiburon, Marin's first "bike box" has been installed in conjunction with several other intersection improvements.  The project was a partnership between the County, Tiburon, and Caltrans, providing better and safer connections across Tiburon Boulevard (State Highway 131) between the neighborhoods on the north side, including Bel Aire school, with the east-west bicycle and pedestrian connector route for the Tiburon peninsula.  More information on the bike box project and how a bike box works is available here . 

HORSE HILL PATH REPAVED November, 2016 ~ Caltrans has repaved the Horse Hill path, linking Mill Valley and Corte Madera along Highway 101.  This much-needed project has resulted in new paving for its entire length - no more cracks and bumps to navigate!  While not flat, it is the less steep alternative to Camino Alto/Corte Madera Avenue between to two communities.  Jump on the bike or lace up the walking shoes and enjoy some smooth sailing!

July, 2016. The draft feasibility study evaluates if a multi-use path, along with railroad and roadway facilities, can fit within the available public right-of-way along the Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit corridor from Rice Drive to 2nd Street in San Rafael.  To review the draft Study document and concepts, visit the Projects page under Active Planning Studies.
