You've heard of "Park and Ride."

Well, what about "Park and Cycle?" Some Ottawa cyclists are furious they've been ticketed for parking at city-owned parks along the Ottawa River. They're using the sites as halfway points to commute to work.

On any given day, there are a handful of commuters using the parks to do the "switchover”; park their cars and continue on bike. Except the city says that's not what those parks are for.
