Rapid City, SD, bike-friendly?

I was delivering here today and rode from the Windmill T/S over to Rushmore Mall and whatnot.
No bike lanes anywhere and people act like they've never seen a bicycle before.
Anyone who lives in this area could probably tell me different though.
That way, I could decide whether or not to waste time there again or not.

You ought to ride up through Spearfish Canyon. I also rode from Spearfish to Devil's Tower in Wyoming. I love riding out there. I have not ridden my recumbent in that area, only rode out there when I had my rode bike. I have yet to ride in a more beautiful area in the continental U.S.

As far as riding in Rapid City, no I never did. Where I did ride though I would recommend it to anyone.

My fingers must be weak.
I meant "friendly", but I guess it could also be a harbinger of sorts.

Would you like me to change the title or keep it fiendish?
