Every time I see such a sign, I get very angry about the fucking moron,
who was responsible for this bullshit. Of course, it is in no way
acceptable to let people dismount their bikes. Bicycles are not toys,
they are vehicles of their own right.

That's way I also don't think it is acceptable for a routing service to
suggest a route for a bicycle where one can't use it the way it is
supposed to be.
