A confusing sign for Cyclists

Here’s a confusing sign of you’re a cyclist:

Confusing sign for Cyclists

1. This is part of a marked out cycle route – recognisable by the green bicycle with the arrow.

2. But it’s for pedestrians only – see the white mother and child on a blue background.

3. So cyclists should dismount – “Radfahrer absteigen”

4. Oh, and it’s private property anyway – “Privatgrundstück”, but you can still push your bicycle across it at your own risk – “Betreten auf eigene Gefahr!”.
