No. If - for example - you need to turn left on the next crossing and the
adjacent cycleway is separated from the main road so that it is not
possible to turn left from the cycleway, you are allowed to switch to the
main road and drive on it in order to turn left. So bicycle=no is never
correct in such situation.
