In brief: Yes

Good vision with both eyes provides the best depth perception.
Clues in the environment can help people with only one good eye to gauge distance. Strabismus acquired after childhood may be associated with double vision which would make cycling and many other activities problematic. Individuals with strabismus or other eye problems should consult with an eye doctor before operating any vehicle.
