These are the 2 pages I used to learn about cycling. It's written very well which makes it easy to understand and make sense of it all. I would've been lost without this.

kateyoup...nitrate is not actually a bacteria in itself. There is bacteria that converts nitrite into nitrate but nitrate is a chemical. But yes, you will know your tank has cycled when ammonia and nitrite are very low and nitrate is steadily climbing.
