Health App Cycling Not Tracking on iOS 8 / 8.1

As it stands, both iOS 8.0, 8.0.1, 8.0.2, and even 8.1 are unable to track Cycling data despite the M8 coprocessor being advertised by apple to be capable of distinguishing Cycling from Walking or Running. Currently, all cycling data is misconstrued as walking or running data causing problems anyone interested in either dataset.
Despite my efforts to try and get the Health app to track cycling (placing the phone in my pocket vs bag vs jacket), all attempts give “No Data” under Cycling Distance and instead provide some arbitrary steps and walking/running distance data in the health kit view.

Cycling Distance: No Data
