What's going on with the cyclist in this image?

[QUOTE 4056582, member: 9609"]and is that Audi kindly leaving space for the cyclist to wobble into,[/QUOTE]
Is that a bus stop she's in or is it a bus lane?
It's a bus stop. It ends just in front of the cyclist. The photographer is standing on the pavement. The cyclist is about to have to merge right and tango with the Audi, which has been waiting for this moment :smile:
 
Sorry I didn't intend to derail your thread
No need to apologise, I'm not precious about this thread. Anyway, I've got the answer to my question, she is Iron(wo)man.

OK. It's a long bus stop but I'd probably stay out of it on the grounds of having to merge again unless she's just avoiding that massive metal grid thing but that light means she's probably a Cyberman so the Audi better watch out.

No light on the front of the bike either.

This is what I first thought. Plus if the traffic is at a standstill, may as well use the extra space afforded by the bus stop.

No, nothing in the foreground is lit by a flash, to that's not it.
Perhaps not by the photographer taking the shot, but I suspect there were a few people with camera phones and the like snapping the Xmas lights on Oxford St.out of shot?

With a slow flash speed of 1/250 of a second it would be highly unlikely to time it that well. Plus if it were the flash from another device, then her face/body would be lit up.
