OconomoWalk and Bike


Come ride Lake Country with OconomoWalk & Bike! You don’t need an expensive bike and a Spandex suit to ride with us – just any bike in good repair, a helmet, and a desire to explore Lake Country’s scenic views or outstanding shopping while your car stays at home. The Lake Country Trail, the Glacial Drumlin Trail and a network of safe, low traffic streets and country roads make biking a perfect way to get to know Lake Country.

OconomoWalk & Bike advises local government on safe cycling routes, publishes maps of scenic rides and routes to shopping areas, sponsors weekly group rides and holds two annual events to teach kids about biking safety. If you’re a cyclist, or want to get back into cycling, we’d love to meet you!
