Q407: Can a cyclist commit dangerous driving?

A cyclist can commit the offence of dangerous cycling as opposed to dangerous driving. The test to determine dangerous cycling is the same as to determine dangerous driving.

The test is whether the standard of cycling/driving falls far below what would be expected from a reasonably competent driver/cyclist and it would be obvious to a competent and careful cyclist that riding in that way would be dangerous.
