Mt. Tam (Mount Tamalpais) in Marin County is considered by many to be the birthplace of modern day mountain biking, but the truth is that some form of mountain biking has been around for almost a century. 

The word "infantry" refers to the division of the army that enters fighting/combat on foot and In the 1800’s there was an army division called the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corp whose job it was to put together bikes that could carry their gear over rough ground and terrain. In August of 1896 a group of riders from this infantry rode from Missoula, Montanat to Yellowstone National Park…and then back. Their goal was to test a new bicycle to see if the military could use it for traveling mountainous areas. This test went so well that the next year

purple meters       &     meters

 

Have you seen the folks in bright yellow shirts sweeping our downtown San Rafael sidewalks? Have you seen the purple meters scattered around downtown San Rafael?  The folks in yellow shirts are part of the Downtown Streets Team and the purple meters are part of Put Your Change To Work program, which is a way to discourage panhandling.  What?  Read on!

The Downtown Streets Team is an organization that believes that by having a job and being able to take care of ones’ own basic needs is the center piece to helping folks transition to a better life…and get them off the streets.

The Downtown Streets Team organization has changed lives in at least 6 bay area cities since 2007, and have been doing so in San Rafael, since 2013.

As I sell real estate throughout Marin County, I often come across a buyer that is reluctant to take a look into Novato.

Since I live in Novato and specialize in the area, I feel inclined to share with you what makes this once bustling town that became a super sleepy town, but now on the rise… great place to live and raise a family. I also want to share the details of the immense change that has occurred over the years and what the future seems to hold for this great community. With that said, I share with you a brief history of Novato starting with the early development back in 1856 when Joseph Sweetser and Francis DeLong purchased a Mexican land grant

Christmas Tree Disposal in Marin County:

Marin County does a great job on recycling Christmas trees. Most of the sanitary districts will pick up your tree from the curb on green can pick-up days. There are a few rules like cutting the tree down if it’s over 5 or 6 feet and no flocked trees. Of course, remember to take off all the ornaments, lights and stands. If curbside does not work for you, all Marin County Fire Department stations (through January 21), have an area where you can drop off your tree. Click here for detailed information.

Want to help fund a safe grad night? There is a tree drop fundraiser going on as part of the San Marin High School Safe Grad Fundraiser. A suggested $5 donation ($15 for a flocked tree) at the San Marin High
