Many jurisdictions?  Yes.  All jurisdictions?  No.

There are places like federal Wilderness Areas in the United States
where possession of a bicycle is forbidden: it doesn't matter if you're
riding it, walking it, or carrying it, it's not allowed.  We need some
way of tagging this restriction, so that routers know not to send
bicyclists along these trails.
