Need help with a trip to Montana

My wife just informed me that we're going to fly to Montana for a week's vacation in late July. We've traveled a good bit but that is one area that seems to have missed our radar in past years.

I googled Montana and found a site that provides a number of bike routes that hold promise. I need to plan a week's worth of "entertainment" for just the two of us.

What city should we fly in to?
What are activities or areas we should plan to do think about doing?
Any suggestions on bike routes, preferably road riding. I don't have any problems with "climbing" hills...
Ideas on areas to stay??

"Zin" - who frequents BikeJournal.com and sometimes bikeforums.net lives in Montana and might be quite helpful.

Try sending him an email,

or I can contact through BikeJournal.com if you aren't a member there.

There is a guy on the road cycling forum who lives in Bozeman and seems very knowledgable about this very thing. He is called Cypress.
