I'm curious to hear your thoughts on how to recover damages from cyclists, the damage being either to a car or another bike.

I was rear-ended by a cyclist who thought drafting me in traffic was a good idea. I was forced to brake hard to avoid an obstacle and the cyclist hit me, doing considerable damage. [Note that I'm purposely omitting the type of vehicle (car/bike) I was operating].

How would one reasonably recoup damages from the cyclist given that ID and insurance are not requirements for riding a bicycle, especially when the police are unlikely to respond to accidents involving damages under roughly $1k?
