Did route 50...on my BMW MC...
I rode Rt 50 on my old BMW Motorcycle...a number of years ago when I was living in Olney, MD and running to Michigan to see my folks. Left the house in a soft rain, and caught 50 and rode it all the way into Ohio. I remember the smell of burning brake pads from the coal trucks on the downhills into towns. I remember NO shoulders on the road, lots of gravel and FOG in the valleys. NOT the place for a bike, and that was about 20 years ago...
I guess I'd look for another route....
