In Canada, too, every road has speed limits. But is it really true in Denmark you are allowed to drive 10 kph under or over that limit? Eg., On a road marked 50 kph you are allowed to drive at 40kph ( no slower!) and up to 60 kph (no faster!)? This is much different than what we in North America are used to where a speed limit is an actual limit. One may not go faster than the posted limit , but on most roads one may go slower.
Also, we cyclists in Canada are not required to ride as far right " humanly possible", but are required to ride as far right as "practicable"...there's a difference. AND we are allowed to take the lane if we ( cyclists ) deem it best for our own safety.
