Both a cyclist and bicyclist are a single person who rides or is riding a bike or bicycle which are the same thing.

it occurs to me that a cyclist does not need to be going about on two wheels as a bicyclist does by definition.

If you can get the cyclist to cooperate the easiest is to stick a cyclocomputer on his bike, and see what it registers. Or a GPS can be used for the same purpose. Or you can use another vehicle, with a speedometer, to trail the bike and see how fast he's going. Failing that you can measure a distance between something like two lamp posts, and then time the cyclist as he passes between your starting line and your finishing line. Some basic math later and you'll know the speed.

Allow a minimum of three feet of clearance when passing a cyclist and reduce your speed.

The cyclist could be temporarily blinded.Do not follow a cyclist closely. If you are too close and the cyclist must slow suddenly in an emergency, you could run them over. Bicyclists are entitled to move away from the right side of a lane when that lane is too narrow to safely share with a motor vehicle. Most travel lanes in Florida range from 10' to 12' wide and guidance indicates that a 14' lane is a width that allows safe sharing with most motor vehicles. Wet roads impair a bicyclist's ability to brake and maneuver. Potholes or railroad tracks often require bicyclists to change positions within their lane. When railroad tracks areskewed, the bicyclist must change directions in order to cross over the tracks at a ninety- degree angle or risk a fall.
