    [TMA] Denmark and bicycles

    I plan on visiting Denmark in september and I need to know couple of things. So I ask you, my fellow shitposters:

    1) Can you ride a bike over the bridges connecting various islands? I'm mainly interested in Sjaelland -> Lolland -> Mon. If not, how are you supposed to get around on bike between them?
    2) Can you camp in tent where you want or is it verbotten and must use designated campsites?
    3) How's the weather in september?

    Thx.

    In September weather should be entering Fall so it can probably shift from year to year. (from +5 -> +20 is my guess)

    There's no right to roam in Denmark, you'll need permission from the landowner, use a campsite or a designated spot to pitch your tent.

    September can be anything from glorious balmy summerdays to days when it rains sideways making you long for the grave.

    There is a bridge that you can cycle across to Lolland (the Storstrom Bridge) but apart from that you have to go by train or ferry if you want take your bike across the straits between the islands.

    2) Can you camp in tent where you want or is it verbotten and must use designated campsites?
    Don't know shit about camping but I'd imagine that camping like a hobo is against the rules in Denmark.

    3) How's the weather in september?
    Not amazing. Prepare for rain. You can get some raincoats/raintrousers at Bilka or something if you need them.

    Mate, the last time I was in Denmark was 32 years ago, but Youth Hostels were pretty good there, cheap and the only YHs in Europe with beer. I think that camping September is a fucking masochistic thing to do, because it's Denmark, where it rains a lot the whole year and in Autumn it gets worse.

    1) its Sjælland, Lolland, Møn you fucking savage, also Storstrøms and Guldborgsund allows you to bike across, but Øresund does not, rule of thumb, if there's a railway connection, you're expected to use it.
    2) verboten outside designated camping areas, go to sweden for that fucking hippie.
    3) it's fall in Scandinavia ? what do you think ? in all honesty it could be anywhere between "it's still summer" and "holyee shit, is this Siberia?!?" at that time of year, also expect rain.

    Well tbh nothing is really stopping you from taking the bike over in the Car lane? At least in Sweden a Bike is considered a vehicle and are allowed in traffic lanes. If its a "dangerous" road one might not want to, but thats another matter.

    this is a fine way to get a enormous fine meight.

    you're not allowed to take your bike onto any sort of motorway link and a a chunk of "main route" both in terms of bridges and tunnels connections are off-limits to non-motor vehicles as well.
