I

f you could see Nebraska through my eyes, you'd explore Nebraska by bike. If you came to Nebraska and asked where to ride, I'd send you to Valentine, Neb. That's where the western edge of the 196 mile Cowboy Trail begins and a journey through Nebraska by bike. There are so many wonderful sights and sounds along the trail. Ride over grand rail road bridges, take a plunge into the cool spring fed Long Pine Creek at Long Pine SRA or grab a milkshake at the historic Range Cafe and shoot some pool at the Newport Pool hall. Every town along the trail welcomes cyclists and has a place for you to hang your hammock.

My name is Alex and this is Cowboy Nature and Recreation Trail through my eyes.
