1. He forgot to take his cycle (carelessly).
2. He was forgot to take his cycle (carelessly).
Please correct the above.
Guide me the nuance of the grammar involved.
Thanks.

The 2nd is not possible.

Those structures work with 'remembered', but not with 'forgot'. You cannot just take a structure and substitute a different word then expect it to always work.
He was reminded to take his cycle.
He remembered to take his cycle.
