I don't think I've done it that direction on a bike, but I think if you don't mind traffic, 20 will do the job. As you get close to downtown, I think there's even a bike lane. I don't know about west of downtown.
when I went into Cleveland as the final leg of a short trip last year, I hugged the coast, 283 and related roads. There's a dedicated route that's part MUP and part road. Some of it is dedicated as a scenic drive and some as a bike route, but it's all passable and, to my mind, fairly pleasant. But it is probably not the most direct or fastest route. And all that depends on the weather. Being along the coast in bad weather can leave you more exposed to the wind and rain.
