Every Christmas Day for the past 18 years I have taken a ride on my bicycle through the parking garages of downtown Knoxville TN, my hometown. Over the years I have gathered like minded individuals to join me in this questionable pursuit. Fun is the usual result.


Christmas Day
The city is ours
come out and play
libation pours
Cycle through
garages empty
cars removed
to the country

Come on now
Let's do this shit
I'm talking about
Parking garage crits

Coaster Races
The Spiral of Death
happy faces
out of breath
take your turn
be a winner
I'll make you earn
your Christmas Dinner

Ditch the family, ditch the kids
I know you'll be glad you did
Say Mom & Dad I'll see you later
I got my own way to celebrate

The sinking rowboat
on Gay St
1 O'Clock Christmas Day
We meet
Bring a bottle
bring a flask
filled with what?
No need to ask

Junior & Sis, I gotta go
Help your mom till I get home

Parking Garage Crits!
