NEW Google Mobile requirements

With the NEW Google mobile requirements they released a TEST page for validating whether your website is Mobile Friendly.

https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

When I enable Mobile in the settings and run a Google test on my domain it fails:
The requested URL redirected to http://mydomain.com/m/ which is disallowed by robots.txt.

If I disable Mobile in settings I get the following:
Page appears not mobile-friendly
✕Text too small to read
✕Links too close together
✕Mobile viewport not set
✕Content wider than screen
How Googlebot sees this page
This page uses 9 resources which are blocked by robots.txt.

How do I fix it? I havent really changed anything but test and added a few images on the site. Not really a coder.

Thanks

changed the last line to:
Allow: /m/
Seems to work a bit better.
What else can I allow for better Googlebot rendering?

Hello Dimitri

Also you need to enable redirection to mobile version of MotoCMS template. As soon as you turn on this redirection, tool from Google will be able to analyze your mobile version and depending on the quality of mobile version content, will give you the result.

Best regards,
