Technician Deputy Photo Editor John Joyner said:

Greg Wilson did a nice job here of thinking outside the box to get this shot. Using a GoPro, he was able to get the shot from an angle that would have been very hard to get otherwise. Getting a shot from onboard the bike lent an intimacy to the photo that a shot from the third person would not have had. Additionally, the moment shown, with the bus passing on the left and a car parked ahead, adds an almost claustrophobic element to the photo. These elements combine to make a strong photo taken from an unusual perspective, and this week’s photo of the week.
