most bicycle=no tags out there actually mean that you cannot ride a bike, not 
that you cannot have a bike in your pocket or be pushing a bike or carrying a 
bike in a box or on your shoulders.

I would suggest a different tag than bicycle=no for places where you cannot 
bring a bicycle, because otherwise you will never know which interpretation of 
bicycle=no was used by the mapper.

The wiki is unsure about the exact meaning, the bicycle=* page says it is about 
restrictions for bicycles while the access page (older) says it is about 
restrictions for cyclists. IMHO the most common interpretation is legality of 
cycling/riding a bicycle.
