I'd hope that bicycle=no would have the same implications for having a bicycle without riding it as other *=no tags would for their transports. For example I would guess that where horse=no is used, you often can't walk your horse as well as not riding it. So maybe having a separate tag for things which are not allowed (e.g. prohibited=bicycle;horse;explosives) could be the way to go.

Throwing out some more random examples, there are tunnels which have "no explosives to be taken into this tunnel, trucks with those detour that way ->" signs.
