Hi all
HighRouleur has replied at https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/111016252

"In case you weren’t aware, Victorian roads rules state that riding  
not a footpath is not permitted. Hence there does not need to be a  
sign to indicate no bikes.
The only exception apply to shared paths (bike and pedestrians) which  
are signed for use by bikes."

And I have in turn replied
