Do these bikes have snow tires or tires with better grip at least?

Whomever is the genius behind this promotion should be fired and let go because this is borderline criminally negligent. The service is so/so compared to other cities especially European ones but not just this service is more (perhaps the most) expensive of all but he timing of this promo (highest season for accidents due to day-lights savings time change many drivers, riders and pedestrians are walking dead) on top adverse weather (cold wind/snow/rain and ice probably) conditions and darkness makes this 'promo' stupid and outright dangerous. Imagine teenagers (who are known to make impulse decisions with insufficient due diligence) renting bikes in these two weeks and getting killed. What kind of publicity is that? Why can't they do this when the weather and conditions are more favourable for people to try and get "hooked" to the service like summer where the weather is nice and roads are not as congested due to school and business holidays. Many cities/municipalities all around the world encourage people to use a bike ride share in a safely manner but apparently in Toronto some dummies want to create havoc and the worst publicity ever by dangering people's lives with a promotion like this in this accident season . Typical North American or (stupid Torontonian) fashion.

Note from the OP (thanks @sprung ) that this promo apparently started September 21. The promo wasn't timed for snowy roads. It is/was a great deal for some, sorry I didn't see this when it started.

Definitely the dumbest promotion of the year. If you're an experienced and hard core enough biker to bike through Toronto winters safely with proper protective clothing, then you definitely already own a bike. Considering the fashionable hipster types one sees typically using this service, having them splattered head to toe with street sludge probably isn't going to generate repeat customers. The danger is very real (as mentioned in the quoted post), to which should be added the fact that bike lanes clearing is shoddy at best, so that cyclists are often pressed into dangerous proximity with cars in icy lanes narrowed by snow.

I was a winter cyclist until it became too dangerous, and I say that as a motorcyclist! Anyone that has been a winter cyclist in downtown Toronto will tell you how many times they've nearly been killed--drivers frequently don't have winter tires in T.O. and slide all over the place and almost no one removes snow from side windows so they drive completely blind to what is beside them. I'm definitely all for safe winter cycling, but the noobs who don't own a bike and haven't riden one since they were kids should probably stay off the roads until it's safer.

I rode today as it was only wet roads and I ride mainly on king st (little traffic) and adelaid (dedicated bike lane). I have the annual membership but if there's a layer of snow or potential ice, then i'm out
