That would mean that bicyclists need to stop behind the indicated line
for a red light to turn green.  Look for the cutouts in the pavement,
indicating where the "trip wire" (actually a magnetic sensor) is. 
These sensors are supposed to be sensitive enough to be triggered by a
bicycle, though they are occasionally set improperly.  If the green
light doesn't trigger for you after 60 seconds or so, it may be
malfunctioning.  Let your local DPW know about it.
