In terms of carbon composites, comparing planes to bikes, is like comparing a cat to a gold fish, in general. much of the composites used in aircraft are big surface areas like wings and controls surfaces. to get a good comparison you would need to compare a specific part that is similar to a bicycle ins sizing or stress, maybe an actuator arm of some sort.

a better comparison might be road to mt.bike carbon frames
