"Will Losing Jarvis Bike Lanes Hurt Bicycle Safety in Toronto?" was written because, in Toronto, Jarvis Street just lost its briefly-acquired dedicated bicycle lanes.
Cycling advocates had touted the safety factor in separating bicycles from automobiles. There was a rather odd political comment when the bike lanes were removed, although the usual argument is that the extra car lane improved the flow of traffic.

A Writing Tip from Bike Safety versus Fitness
I've been writing about annual Toronto events, such as marathon races or "Taste of the [street]" festivals, in DeHaan Services. Diet and fitness are the staples for DeHaan Fitness, although it has far fewer articles.
Although the change to Jarvis Street might affect cyclists' fitness by making them go slower for safety, or by giving them reason to stop bicycling to work, one serious concern is the political tone that came at the close of the debate.
By the way, the "political tone" is the reason that this blog entry title includes the odd phrase, "automobile citizens". Read my main article to learn why!
I wanted to make a note of that, but do not have a suitable forum.
Time will tell what kind of reaction, if any, this article receives. It's not well focussed on fitness, that blog's main subject. It would not have fit with Toronto events in DeHaan Services.
The writing tip is that you sometimes need to consider, and then decide, whether and where to publish your thoughts. Stay true to yourself and your ideals, but also remain consistent to the brand of your platform, whether it is a blog, magazine or newscast. For this article in DeHaan Fitness, I'm not sure that I kept my feet on the tightrope.
