the wiki says, "bicycle" is about "cyclists" (access-page). Are you a
cyclist when pushing your bike? Are you maybe still a cyclist when you
parked your bike and you still wear your bicycle clothing? Or when you have
a bicycle at home?

My suggestion would be to use something more specific when pushing a
bicycle is forbidden, as you are not a cyclist when you carry or push your
bike, so bicycle=no "in its strict interpretation" doesn't apply to you
when pushing your bike as it applies to "cyclists" and not to bicycles.

Btw.: What about monocycles? Are you alled to carry a monocycle in these
