We celebrated the final week of Sur Place with the MeBike world championship of dream bicycles, fashion performances by Milena Heussler and Girls on Bikes, and the Subbacultcha! After Midnight party and book launch.
Sur Place has come to an end. The exhibition on urban bike culture attracted dare devils, housewives, cool kids and creatures, bicycle fanatics and gear collectors. Mediamatic Bank shows the traces of two months of racing, collecting and sharing of thoughts and ideas. We celebrated the closing of the exhibition with the MeBike race, a Subbacultcha! After Midnight book launch and photo exhibition, bands, djs, and two fashion performances.

MeBike celebrates the bike in all its cool and clean glory, and offers people the opportunity to build their own dream bike in just one day. Tonight the teams were introduced, and while game plans were being made, there were live music and performances. We announced what materials the MeBike participants would be using, and toasted to a successful dream bike race. Dj's Lil' Shy and Ovni spun some sweet sweet records.

During the day the teams worked on their dream bikes. Their process was documented by a television crew. There were performances, and plenty of bands and djs. In the evening the MeBike race took place (the Queen Bike won!) and there was live music by Half-Way Station, Supercity and The Missing Slippers. Milena Heussler and Girls on Bikes gave two fashion performances, and at midnight Subbacultcha! opened their After Midnight exhibition. Hounds of Hate were over from London, and Strange Boutique played a few nice tunes. Now that's what we call a party!
MeBike & After Midnight took places at Mediamatic Bank on Vijzelstraat 68 in Amsterdam. MeBike is an event by Abner Preis and Claudius Gebele, in collaboration with Mediamatic.
