Cycling take attention. In a city, it's like playing a video game with potential death coming from every direction. On a more open road, it's about movement. Either way, the kind of contemplation and attention that I would have while walking around to take photos is very different than the attention I have to the road and to movement when cycling. I can carry a camera for days and weks and never stop my bike to take a photo.
And face it, cycling is about going forward. Stopping means you aren't cycling any more!
