I ride to work downtown from Bloomfield almost daily. I used to bomb down the hill in the Hollow (called Sassafras, N. Neville, or Lorigan on a map) but live a bit aways from that now so I take Liberty. I cut over to Penn at the bottom of the hill, though, and usually don’t have problems. The Strip can be hectic but I just take a whole lane and keep my eyes open.
I take that back way between the tracks and Liberty when I head home. There used to be an aged security guard that would holler at me if he saw me. “No Bikes!” or “This is private property!” but I haven’t seen him in awhile and never stopped to ask him to can it. It’s a nice quiet ride coming home at night. Look for turkeys.
