agree  David Knowles: It's a large bike, presumably needing someone with strong muscles to move and control it. I'm sure there's a Greek term for this transfer of attributes!

neutral  Ioanna Karamanou: Could it perhaps though mean instead that the person commandeering the bike is the one who is heavily muscled, i.e. they are riding it powerfully and it is barrelling towards them?
