That's very dependent on the strength of the cyclist and the type of bicycle used.

Race BMXers are probably the fastest to reach their top speed, but track sprinters have a higher top speed. The way humans work and the way bicycles work means that full acceleration from standstill is rarely used, as a gear that makes for a good start will also mean a low top speed. And a gear that makes for a good top speed will make the bike sluggish at the start. Having a bike with multiple gears tends not to help that much, as very few shifting systems will work particularly well when shifting under full Power.

Either by the help of a downwards slope and gravity, or by the rider pedalling harder. Or possibly by encountering a strong tailwind.

### How can a bicycle seat exert a force?

If you sit on it, you push downward. The bicycle seat naturally pushes back up - if this wasn't the case, you would accelerate downward, due to the force of gravity.

### Is the force needed to accelerate a car greater than the force needed to accelerate a bicycle to the same velocity?

Force is directly proportional to mass. Therefore, even both the car and bicycle are being accelerated to the same velocity, accelerating a car would require more force since it has a greater mass.
