All Spokes

Oconomowoc WI BIKE MAP All Spokes
Just like all spokes on a bicycle wheel meet at the center of the wheel, these "spokes" all lead to Oconomowoc's downtown where you will find racks to park your bike. While there you can explore and enjoy local businesses, area parks and attractions.

Below you'll find information on where the spokes end downtown. You can see icons for bike racks many of which are at nearby parks and downtown attractions like the Oconomowoc Community Center, Veterans Memorial Park and the Oconomowoc Public Library.
