Yes, you are both wrong but the cyclist has a larger responsibility (operating a faster vehicle). It's common that collisions between people are the result of errors made by both people. The second person has a responsibility to react to try to avoid a collision.

The law doesn't allow you to choose to run somebody over. Everybody has a requirement/responsibility to work at avoiding collisions (with people/cars/things).
