    BMR on it's own isn't a useful number unless you are in hospital. :)
    (It's what you burn at total rest and in a fasted state.)

    I'm guessing that "BMR in motion" (not a phrase I've heard before) is your daily weight maintenance number more commonly referred to as TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) which includes your BMR, your daily activity and also an average of your exercise.

    As a regular cyclist you will probably be better using the MyFitnessPal method of accounting for exercise.
    Use the guided goal set up and it will estimate your calorie needs excluding exercise.

    When you ride you log that ride and get the calories estimated added to that day's calorie goal. (I wouldn't suggest using the exercise database entries here as they are awful - presume you have a method for estimating your cycling calorie burns?).

    Sounds like you are trying to lose weight despite posting in the Maintaining Weight forum, suggest you pick a slow rate of loss as you must be exercising a lot based on your numbers and a big cut will affect your performance.

    Where did you get your body fat estimate from?
    If from bathroom scales then beware those estimates can vary from OK to absolutely useless.
