Nebraska Cowboy Trail

I was wondering if anyone has ridden the whole cowboy trail in Nebraska. It is 190 miles of gravel from Norfolk to Valentine. I want to ride it this summer and am starting to plan my trip.

I wear a Bluetooth headset and listen to music while riding on the road all the time. Like every day. About 10,000 miles worth in the last year. It seems perfectly safe to me. If it doesn't feel safe...
