Wheel Lashing

This style of knot helps to spread the load equally between the two wheel spokes.

First pass the rope around the spoke nearest the garter hole, then take it around the second spoke and continue lashing it around both spokes until most of the rope is used up.

Then wrap the remainder of the rope vertically around the first lashings. Complete the knot by passing the loose end under the last turn of the vertical lashing and pulling tight.
