I expect the ladder to be strong enough to handle 50 lbs of bikes if it can handle my 200 lbs climbing up onto the roof.
Have you ever followed anyone going down the road carrying something on the rear of a trailer?
50# of bikes bouncing on the back of a trailer at 60 MPH is way more inertia than 200# of static load going up a ladder.
You can certainly do whatever you want.
I know what my ladder rack is made of, what it is fastened to and how it is merely held on by a few screws. No way will I put anything there.
Just my 2¢ and YMMV.
