U.S. Bicycle Route 50 in Ohio
U.S. Bicycle Route 50 (USBR 50) is an east-west route that crosses the center of the state and is part of a national route that will eventually link Washington D.C. and San Francisco. A 32-mile alternate route, USBR 50A, parallels the main route and takes cyclists along back roads and trails. USBR 50 will be signed as of summer 2016.
In Ohio, USBR 50 runs from Paint Road in Preble County at the Indiana border, through 11 counties. The route passes over to West Virginia on the Market Street Bridge in Jefferson County. Nearly 40 local jurisdictions across Ohio provided resolutions of support for the route.
The U.S. Bicycle Routes System (USBRS) is a developing national network of bicycle routes that are numbered and signed, and often integrate local and regional bike routes and trails. The USBRS opens up new opportunities for bicycle touring and transportation and will eventually encompass 50,000 miles of routes in all 50 states.
