Yes, the intention is to stop people pushing their bikes in a pedestrian 
No limitation on prams, wheelchairs, luggage trolleys, etc.
It's just aimed at bikes (which in a country with lots of bikes, like 
the Netherlands, is understandable).

Again: this really is not what bicycle=dismount is about.
