Toronto bike rental with kid seat?

I didn't have much luck in my Rec & Family post so I'll try here. We're going to spend a long weekend in Toronto. Does anyone know where one might find a bike rental with a toddler seat and if there's any riding in the city that makes it worth looking into such a rental? Thanks!

There are bike rental places including Cyclepath, which is on the subway line on Yonge Street: http://www.cyclepathtoronto.com/ Not sure about toddler seats but they would be worth a call at least.

As far as rideability goes there are good bike paths and on-road bike lanes all across the City: http://www.toronto.ca/cycling/map/index.htm#tcm The trails along the Lakeshore are good (except that the Martin Goodman Trail doesn't connect through the Downtown/Queens Quay section) and I really like the Leslie Street Spit (Tommy Thompson Park) for its open space and views of the City (weekends only). Overall it's fairly flat, but a lot of the trail system follows ravines (hills in and out) and there is a historic glacial lake shoreline running SW-NE that can be a tough climb if you travel north of the Downtown.

Don't get your wheels caught in the streetcar lines - they cause more bike accidents than anything else. Otherwise, it's a good place to ride.
