The value of all those discarded bikes is probably more than the GDP of many 
countries.

Those bike-sharing schemes have arrived in London and other parts of the UK 
now, but luckily they are being regulated a little more effectively. I 
haven't used one, but they seem to be quite popular. I think on balance 
they're a good thing as they help to break the dominance of the internal 
combustion engine and the private car in cities, and a step towards 
eliminating the ICE altogether and removing all but essential public 
transport and deliveries from cities.

In Paris the official bike share scheme has extended to offer e-bikes and 
e-cars.
