Route Suggestions from Manitowoc, WI to Mount Rushmore?

My wife and I are mid-tour and we're arriving in Manitowoc, WI tomorrow (taking the ferry over from Ludington). We've biked a couple thousand miles from Annapolis to Maine and now we're heading west. Rather than follow the ACA North Lakes and Northern Tier routes we're thinking of heading due west from Manitowoc towards Mount Rushmore. For now we'll just try using Google bicycling directions and also try to follow itineraries from cross-country bike tour companies that ride through this stretch. But if anyone has ridden through this part of the country and has route suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

This route got me from Rapid City to Green Bay. Worked pretty good. Rapid to Rushmore on a bicycle is a bit of a challenge. I climbed aboard a tour bus, on an earlier tour to Rapid City. The Black Hills, especially Crazy Horse Monument and the Michelson Trail, are amazing.

Thanks for the link to your trip journal. I'll look it over. I can't wait to see the Black Hills.
