Just wanted to give a quick safety note out to those who don't Road bike. Coming from a guy who cycled thousands of miles to train for races, I never won, but thoroughly enjoyed.
Please be aware that cyclist listen for and hear cars coming up behind them and generally act accordingly (Single file up and move towards the white line). When it is quiet they tend to relax and maybe reach for their water or a quick snack. That can cause them to possibly swerve out into the lane. Give a little more room with your Tesla! They wont know you are there. I scared the crap out of my neighbors, as they were out walking their dogs, they couldn't hear me a couple feet behind them. The outcome for a cyclist if startled or worse - hit, is unacceptable! Remember they are Greener then You!!
