so by bicycle or walking, the only prohibition I think is for motorized
vehicles - motorways excepted naturally)

I guess there's a difference between Sweden and the UK then (apart from
the colour of the bar) because in the UK it does mean no entry to any
vehicle, including cycles.

Actually, it turns out that's what it means in Sweden as well. I guess I
should be embarassed, but I've just never seen anyone take any notice of signs
like that while riding a bicycle. And while walking, what signs...?

There's also an implication that there can be
oncoming traffic. It doesn't mean 'traffic prohibited' (i.e. there's no
traffic at all on the road) that's just a white circle with a red

Yellow circle with red border, otherwise yep.
