Constant Speed

Should I speed up or slow down when passing a cyclist?

Neither. Like passing other cars on a freeway, you should maintain your current speed if possible. Revving your engine can be intimidating, and there is certainly no need to go slowly; it only increases your contact time. It is often necessary for motorists to resume a normal speed after waiting behind a cyclist, but even in these cases, motorists can resume speed gradually and safely.
