Thank you, all! The focus was supposed to be the man but that's clearly not how it turned out.
Well, the first thing you needed to do is "Think!" You would have realized that if the guy was properly exposed, then the bike would be a shapeless white mass that pulled the eye away from your subject. So you would have taken a few steps forward & to your right. (This is assuming that the bikes weren't needed for context, which is a whole different problem needing a solution.)
A few steps forward & to your right would have allowed the (stupid) meter to get a better idea of what the subject was & (probably) improved your overall exposure. But you've got that big bright mass behind him, so probably not.
This is what I use for exposure 99% of the time: Need an exposure crutch?
And this is why I use it: Post #47
But sometimes you don't have 5 seconds to get an exact reading, so think about this: The exposure in bright sunlight will almost never change, so learn what a base exposure is. You can set that in about 1 second. In this case, you should have already had that exposure set in the camera anyway since you're walking around in sunlight, right?
In this case it would have been maybe 1/400 sec f/16 ISO 400.
Seeing the guy in the shade, I could have set a base exposure for shade of 1/125 f/5.6 while I was raising the camera & I would have taken a fast shot. Then I could have checked the meter, adjusted, & taken another shot.
If I had a f/2.8 lens on, then 1/400 f/2.8 would have been faster/easier to set, & would have given maximum blur to the background. But it's a judgement call.
Why ISO 400? Because I might have realized that there might have been grab shots available under the trees. If not for that, 1/200 f/16 ISO 200 would have worked, or 1/200 f/11 ISO 100, etc.
Re: "the (stupid) meter": You used Av, which is OK if you're willing to learn metering modes & exposure compensation (EC), but as you've seen here, you can't just shotgun without thinking about what the meter is "thinking" about.
