Weird bike signs

I heard this one reported on the radio this morning. It was written on a mirror souvenired from the old Adelaide Railway Station when it was pulled down years ago, so the sign probably originates from early last century. The sign simply said:

"No riding bicycles in the toilet"

I've walked my recumbent into the restroom once to keep it safe, but fortunately didn't need to use its seat while in there.

In Germany I once saw a sign indicating that tanks (army tanks) used the path.

At another place there a sign showed a hedgehog over "Please don't ride over us".

OK, so now I am really going to have to take a picture of the sign some day soon.

For those military types that had to do formation runs, you will remeber this "anti-cycling road sign" posted on some of the roads near base housing. I see several of the signs on the army base where I have a favorite cycling route.


It is a large diamond sign with yellow background and black print that says "NO CADENCE".

"NO CADENCE" give me a break, how do you cycle with NO CADENCE?
