  1. regarding the bike rentals cinmog to Toronto, I went to Paris last May. These bike stands are all over the city! They are a terrific idea, and there did not seem to be any problems between vehicles and bikes. Take my word for it, ..traffic in Paris is 3 times as bad as our city. It is rush hour all day long there! Also, people renting the bikes don’t where helmetsI think the rental bikes is a great idea!
