Highway 36 is probably one of the better, busy roads, on which to cross the state. For my part I have driven in at least 100 times in 30 years, and have biked the northern part.
You need always to watch for those friendly Texans who drive on the shoulder to let others pass. There is a good deal of four lane highway in places. The worst part will be from Milano to Temple, and then past I-35 till you get a few miles north. That part of the highway will have lots of traffic. I don't even like driving Hwy 36 in and around Temple.
From Gatesville to Abilene will be minimal traffic and rolling hills and should be great biking.
