What does it mean by "pulled the bike around into the street opposite" please? A cop on a bike was weaving through traffic on the other side of the street...... then pulled the bike around into the street opposite and roared off.

It refers to the kind of action he is making to move the bike, "pulling" the handlebars to turn it. It makes the sentence sound more action-packed than just saying "turned". By "the street opposite" I would understand that he had to cut across the traffic, so overall the sentence is describing some reckless or hasty driving on the part of the cop. I think you have cut a bit so it makes slightly less sense then it should do, but that's what I understand.

Basically the rider turned around and went into a different street. However, I would caution against using a sentence like this; it's not well-written.
