[Tagging] Is there a good way to indicate "pushing bicycle not allowed here"?

Highway=footway implies foot=designated which in turn implies the sign you
show. The default for this is bicycle=no. (in the sense of dismount) in OSM.

On Italian motorways pedestrians and cyclists are forbidden. The default
OSM tags are foot=no and bicycle=no (the foot=no excludes the possibility
to walk your bike on motorways - so there is no problem there)

Apart from the wilderness case we have at least two examples where walked
bicycles are explicitly forbidden, but other wheeled means of human
transport are not, like wheelchairs and baby buggies: the historic part of
Venice and Nymphenburg Schlosspark in Germany. And I am sure there are more
like this.
One thing which springs in mind are many underground systems (with one
notable exception that I know of: Helsinki)

So the problem does not go away. We need a generic no-bicycles-allowed-here
type of tag
