The Dignity of Commuting by Bicycle: Cold-Blooded Murder

(Finding the leak.)

This morning, as I was riding up Avenue A along Tomkins Square Park, something fell out of the air and into the bike lane right in front of me. It looked like a balled-up rust brown sweater that had been thrown from a top floor window. "What new indignity is this?," I sighed to myself. "Are cyclists being pelted with dirty laundry now?"

As I drew closer and stopped though I realized it wasn't a sweater at all. It was in fact a terrier-sized hawk with a beak that looked like it could tear a Rivendell Roly Poly off a Mavic MA-2 with minimal effort, and it was standing atop a very nonplussed-looking pigeon. I beheld it with awe for a moment until it flew across the sidewalk and perched itself upon an iron fence, the poor pigeon very much alive and dangling from the hawk's talons.

The hawk looked back at me with typical hawk-like sang-froid, and the pigeon looked at me at me with resignation and a sense of inevitability. (Well, admittedly it was the same expression they have when they pick crumbs from discarded Twinkie wrappers, but they look resigned and possessed of a sense of inevitability when they do that too.) I felt like I had walked in on a fraternity brother taking advantage of an intoxicated sorority sister. Then, I realized I had my camera on me, but in my typical fashion I fumbled with it like a Nü-Fred trying to work a multi-tool and by the time I managed to turn the thing on the hawk decided to take off in search of a quieter place to tear the pigeon apart. I did, however, manage to get a picture of the pair just as they departed:

The hawk is pretty well camouflaged and almost looks like a big knot in the tree, but it's there, and so is the pigeon. I'm assuming the hawk is a red-tailed hawk, since according to the field guide I purchased at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge awhile back they're pretty common around here, and I have seen similar hawks picking at carcasses in the parks every so often. Here's a closer look:

It almost looks like the hawk has its talon around the pigeon's shoulder and like it's simply leading it away someplace where they can chat in private, but even though I'm no ornithologist I'm pretty sure that's not what the hawk has in mind. By the way, I wasn't the only fascinated onlooker. My photograph also reveals a delighted child enjoying the scene:

A little smaller and he might have been in danger himself.

Anyway, after that the kid and I grabbed a beer together and reflected on how beautiful it is that you can watch nature at work in its most basic way even right in the middle of the city. Ordinarily I find bike lane intrusions irritating, but I welcome little miniature nature documentaries like this one any day. I would be similarly delighted if a family of beavers dammed up the new bi-directional bike lane that now runs along Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, and would simply welcome it as an opportunity to practice my cyclocross remounts.

Speaking of encountering little delights while riding, a number of people have informed me that the city of Copenhagen somehow continues to devise new ways of pleasing its bicycle commuters. The latest is this little footrest, forwarded to me by a number of readers, which means that cyclists no longer have to go through the trouble of extending their feet all the way to the street at red lights:

The translation for what's written on the footrest is: "Hi, cyclist! Rest your foot here... and thank you for cycling in the city." Presumably, this photograph was taken just before the city's "Intersection Cycling Pleasure Squad" arrived to clean the rider's glasses, rub his shoulders, and check his air pressure. While some might argue that with this Copenhagen has overshot "improvement" by about three or four blocks and is now deep in the neighborhood known as "coddling," I personally think they've still got a ways to go and I'm looking forward to the implementation of the new bathroom "home wiping for cyclists" service sometime in the spring.

Sadly, we will probably never see this level of coddling in New York City, for the simple reason that our bicycle commuters believe the act of putting your foot down while cycling at any point is a despicable act of surrender. This is true of all cyclists: Nü-Freds, roadies, messengers, Beautiful Godzillas, the "fitness cyclist" wearing a sweatsuit while riding a hybrid, and even the irritable "Finding Forrester" guy who rides a three-speed and only leaves his apartment once a month to have painfully protracted interactions with postal clerks and bank tellers as people waiting on line groan impatiently behind him. For this reason, any intersection footrests would go unused. Consider the gentleman in the purple pants:

I found myself riding behind the gentleman in the purple pants recently and he exhibited typical New York City-style intersection behavior. Upon approaching the red light, he shoaled me and struggled awkwardly to slow his brakeless track bike, and then rolled through the crosswalk and into the intersection, where he proceeded to trackstand. However, he was unable to maintain the trackstand for the duration of the red light. He struggled valiantly, but eventually he was forced to do the unthinkable and put his foot down. At this point, a weaker-willed rider might resign himself to waiting and move out of the way of oncoming traffic, but the gentleman in the purple pants instead attempted to salvage his dignity by crossing the busy intersection by means of an incredibly awkward fixed-gear "schluff." If you've ever seen a fixed-gear "schluff," it's a horrible sight--more so even than a traditional "schluff." A traditional "schluffer" stands next to the bicycle, but the fixed-gear "schluffer" continues to straddle the bicycle and pushes him- or herself along with one foot while the other remains in the toe clip rotating along with the crankarm. It's as graceless as a hawk swooping down and grabbing a pigeon is graceful, but ultimately just as tragic.

In any case, had there been a footrest there I very much doubt the gentleman in the purple pants would have availed himself of it. Cyclists here prefer to press on regardless of how unreasonable it may be to continue. I, however, would make frequent use of intersection footrests. Whether it's a hawk attack or a fixed-gear "schluff," I prefer to rest comfortably and enjoy the carnage.

One day near the end of cycling season, I pulled up out of the metropolitan park and onto a neighborhood street I cut through to get home. I heard some sort of pop, and as I rode along right next to me, nearly onto me a dead squirrel hurtled head first from a utility pole to the pavement. Thud! I told myself, Snobbie, this is not somesort of Greek omen, --it's just a dead squirrel--that eff'n got electorcuted at the precise moment I turned the corner and nearly hit me on the head.

Am I still a little freaked out, yep.

I very often repurpose curbs, retaining walls, jersey barriers, lost 'Bump-its' and truck tires as footrests. The 'median' thingy at the Manhattan end of the Manhattan bridge works very well too.

I like to sit there a watch other cyclists cut in front of traffic comming off the bridge while I get scowled at by elderly denizens of Chinatown for being on what they believe is their sidewalk that someone mistakenly painted a yellow line on.

I witnessed something similar to the hawk incident a few weeks ago. It was one of the coldest days of the winter so Central Park was almost empty, but as I entered I noticed a crowd of people in the middle of the drive near the Boathouse. I wondered if some stupid publicity stunt was occurring but as I got closer I noticed an incredibly large owl--plumage completely white--sitting on a very low branch and clutching a dead squirrel in its giant talons. Actually, I believe the squirrel was impaled on the talons rather than simply being held by them.

It was such a serene scene that I wondered if the owl was real, but as I approached the tree on my second lap it was gone. There were at least a dozen people with cameras snapping photographs, but I've yet to find it online.

Jefe said...

So much nature! A red-tailed hawk and a purple-panted nu-Fred, all on one excursion (the latter being the more feared). Upstate, we have deer that sometimes body-block cyclists in the road, but human predators tend to be middle-schoolers who think salmoning is the preferred form of urban cycling.

I think the gentleman in the purple pants is related to the man in the yellow hat.

Ah, the childlike wonderment! Lovely picture.

Yesterday I was all of a bike length from a red fox before it broke its intent gaze on something else and ran out of my path.

But there is nothing like fresh pigeon blood to add zest to one's daily sandwich.

sufferist said...

Interesting coincidence, while coming home to Oklahoma from Kansas this weekend, we spotted 35-40 redtail hawks at various points across the miles. Most were just sitting up in the trees, a few were flying, I saw none carrying small children though. It must be the difference between rural chilluns and city chilluns. While rural children are more likely to be free-range and thus vulnerable to raptor attack, they typically are packing heat or at least some type of fixed blade.

To them "fixie" has a whole different meaning.

I'm lucky to have part of my commute run along-side a river, so I've had foxes, herons, deer, geese, ducks, snakes, and of course squirrels doing their part to make my ride enjoyable.

The guy with the purple pants is German. Back in the day (the 90s) you could identify a German by his/her red jeans. They caught on to this, and are now wearing polychromatic jeans, but still cool eyeglasses.

I wonder if the city would be willing to install these automobile intersection coddling devices, or AICDs, in NYC. If they provided the following items I'm reasonably sure it would be surprisingly successful:

-ipod/iphone charger

Bikesnob,

Very impressive action shot. I must say, as I was reading I was getting ready to be disappointed knowing that any picture you might get even on a good day would be blurry and out of frame etc. That is a commendable effort for one who is fumbling like a "Nu-Fred".

I saw a pedestrian get hit by a cab in NYC once but I didn't get a picture...I must have been fumbling like a drunk Nu-Fred riding without a saddle.

Don't worry Cognorant, that's like getting a picture of a Cat 2 racer on rollers behind his Outback.

Sweet photo Snob. Nature is really cool huh?
I don't want to even think about how much accumulated chemicals and garbage that hawk is ingesting indirectly though.

Thanks Kale,

Having no experience with Cat 2 racing (or any other for that matter) I can't appreciate the analogy but I can imagine it's funny to watch.

Red tailed hawks taste like nonplussed chicken.

kfg said...

One of the surer ways to determine whether a hawk is a red tailed:

It will have a red tail.

If mature it'll also be big enough to take on a cat or a Yorkie.

This looks like a falcon. These are being deliberately fostered in the city just to prey on the pigeons. A falcon will close on a pigeon faster than a Cavendish on a Hushovd.

Max said...

This is one of your best articles in a while :)

I love how biking really does bring us closer to nature. My commute takes me past a large creek, so I get to see ducks, waterhens, turtles and water lizards pretty much every day. It's great!

recumbent conspiracy theorist said...

Ah wildlife observation. Numerous times my spider senses have alerted me to deer off to the side in dense cover. I also like the small birds that will pace along side somtimes for a considerable distance. I think they are just bored or trying to get a closer look at the funny bike.

Another great post as usual. Thanks Snob!

That footrest *looks* impressive enough, but how would it stand up to a 16 oz ball peen hammer?

PhilboydStunge said...

Well at least your german had pants. Back when I was a kid germans didn’t have pants. If you wanted to make fun of one who was shoaling you, you had to slip up behind him real sneaky, hoping he wouldn’t stand up out of the saddle and show you his big ole german crack before you asked him if he had Prince Albert in a can. Not like these hipster cyclists today who have everything handed to them.

good analogy kale. to translate - one sees it all the time.

Buteo "Red" Jamaicensis said...

Nice i.d. on the hawk. That's definitely a red-tailed hawk. I could go into a longish treatise on the various field marks, but suffice it to say that a red-tailed hawk's tail is red when viewed from above, but the underneath is buffy colored (unless strongly backlit then the red shows through to the underside.) Thus in the parlance, it is not necessarily a controlling fieldmark, but it is one of several that are diagnostic of the species. The only falcon that can handle something as large as a pigeon is a peregrine, and they have an entirely different coloration (colorway?) from this bird. New York City is full of red-tailed hawks now, and they have adapted to catching pigeons, rodents and rabbits being their more natural prey outside the city.

I guess that was a longish treatise after all. Sorry.

I may not have seem a hawk in action today, but on my way in to work, I did pass a fender-bender. Luckily, nobody was seriously hurt, but one of the drivers was insured by GEICO.

On the bike, during my days of being able to ride, A bobcat ran up beside me for a second and then it cut right in front of me. Funniest thing, the sound that came out of me was closest to barking. Almost hit a large cat and I "Barked" at it, it scared me so bad.
