I'm not from the area, but I've done some riding there and would concur with the other guys on taking in the North Cascades Highway, and the Columbia River Gorge. Here's a couple of shots of the latter:
I would also suggest coming inland and taking in the mountains like Rainier and St Helens.
I like Seattle and think it's worth a visit. If you have time, you might want to hop a ferry over to the Olympic Peninsula.
It is a beautiful part of the world, I think you're going to have fun.
Hell, even a boring old freeway like I-90 is a pretty ride.

Towards the end, you can still see the devastation that occurred even decades after the eruption.
For some reason the video looks very shaky on Youtube. Just imagine it's buffeting.
