In some places it is illegal to both ride and push bicycle but it is legal to walk, there is no good tagging scheme to indicate it, bicycle_pushed=no and bicycle_possession=no were suggested.
Objects where both cycling and walking (foot=no + bicycle=no) such as typical motorway are not problematic, as dismounting and walking while pushing bicycle is clearly not OK. There is also bicycle=dismount for tagging places where one is allowed to push bicycle but not allowed to cycle. Note that while roads/footways completely banning even pushing bicycles are quite rare compared to ones where just cycling is not allowed, bicycle=no is far more popular than bicycle=dismount. It is used over 942 000 times together with highway=* while bicycle=dismount just 73 000 times. It indicates that majority of mappers is using bicycle=no to indicate places where pushing bicycle is OK.
Even if someone is using bicycle=no with intention to state that pushing/carrying bicycle there is forbidden it is impossible to distinguish bicycle=no mapped with meaning "no cycling" and "no presence of bicycles is allowed". It makes bicycle=no and bicycle=dismount tags a de facto equivalent.
- bicycle=dismount - that includes also more detail how dismount value appeared despite being a de facto duplicate of bicycle=no
