The boxes business is most likely leading us a bit up the Nymphenburg
Schlosspark garden path.
The real issue is routing for bicycles.
Many (bicycle) routers I know would route you against (short) stretches of
one-way roads or on short stretches of (bicycle=no) footpaths, so in those
cases it is important to be sure that you distinguish between hard-no and
soft-no for bicycles.
I have come across another type of hard-no for bicycles in the form of
chicane-type cycle barriers too narrow to push a bicycle (or a wheelchair)
