[sign removed] for anyone who wants to be confused about cycling in Versoix.
I quizzed the Versoix authorities about the meaning and it's apparently all about the distinction between "piste cyclable" and "bande cyclable", and the end of one and the beginning of the other. I'm not going to try and translate and explain, because it's the sort of thing that can only make sense to a lawyer and is incomprehensible to a poor cyclist who got confronted with this nonsense.
The blue sign says "you have to use this", it's usually something like a sidewalk that's jointly used by pedestrians and bicycles, often with split "lanes" (yellow separation line) for either.

The white sign says "bicycles allowed", but it applies to the road rather than the sidewalk. An ordinary road (50km/h limit) will usually either have a bike lane or repeated yellow bicycles painted on the asphalt on the right, not sure how that's handled with lower speed limit roads.
