From the email, looks like fun!
We are engineering students at MIT who are building a device (Terrainer) for competitive cyclists to train outdoors. To further improve our project, we are looking for competitive cyclists to help test and provide feedback on our product.
We would really appreciate it if you can help us with our first round of testing this weekend outside Z-Center on the opposite side of its Vassar entrance, closer to Kresge (120 Vassar, Cambridge, MA 02139) or inside Z-Center if raining:
Friday, 10am-8pm (except 1-2pm)
Below is a doodle so you can sign up for a 15-min slot with your availability: http://doodle.com/
We will provide a bike and a prototype, so you will not need to bring anything else.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We appreciate your time!

Nothing better than a bicycle to get just about anywhere in this town, I guess if you live farther north you need to make a bit of an adjustment to the front wheel… Plus the song is cute.
