Can I use the phrase "A bit yet to go" saying about a small distance yet left to cover, let's say, by riding a horse or driving a car? The phrase fits into lyrics I'm trying to write. I've searched on Google, but the results seem to mean "yet more things to do" or something like that.

    It's a lyric -- you can use anything you want. What you suggest is easily understood by native English speakers (at least in the US).

    The very first "hit" when Googling define bit comes up with this: A small piece, part, or quantity of something. ‘give the duck a bit of bread’ / (a bit) A short time or distance. ‘I fell asleep for a bit’

    I think 'a bit yet to go' is an elegant use of the words that take just the meaning you intend. Keep it up till you get there.
