Portland sports activites and/or rainy day suggestions?

I will be in Portland for two weekdays in August. My hosts will be working during the day, so I'm looking for sports activities to entertain myself with during the day. I found a place to rent mtn bikes, but does anyone have any tips on good places to ride in and around the city? Also I found Ainsworth State Park online as a good place to rock climb--any tips on climbing or how to hook up with lead climbers?

Finally, if the weather doesn't cooperate with sports what would be the one place I MUST visit while there? (I've already done CRG last year.)

THANKS!

For bike riding, Mt. Tabor (paved) and Forest Park (unpaved) are both nice if you don't mind hills. Check REI (outdoor store in Portland) for rock climbing info. Not sure what your indoor interests are, need more info to help!
