20km/h is not legalization of EUCs and other electric ridables. It's a formal (on paper) legalization and a factual ban (because that will be it, good luck getting anything changed when people can just say "We already dealt with the issue") on any ridables that are actually remotely useful for anything else than leisure purposes. Who's going to commute with a EUC for 10+ km distances at 20km/h vs the 35 or 40 that might easily be possible, or anything else where time matters?

I even prefer the German state of things: most likely unregulated, but nobody is going to believe you, so you have to go to court if you want to get your (most likely existing) right. But in the end, at least any speed will have been legal.

20kph, 22kph, 25kph? who's counting?  So if you creep over a little when the way is clear and no one is nearby, who's to know or care?  It's something, you're legal.  And if you are traveling at say 25kph, and the fuzz comes around the corner, it's nothing to slow to 20ish in a second or less.  Nice report.

Agree, 20kph is to low for unicycles. Hoverboards at 20 kph are dangerous and will cause problems when somebody is reckless.

Congrats @Henrik Olsen, you're an exemplar Ambassador! Once one country accepts them, even as half-heartedly as this, it sets a positive precedent for other EU countries scratching their heads about what to do with this weird on-Wheel contraption—except the UK which is bound by the irrevocable & unalterable 1835 Carriage Highway Act. 

Cool to see the Electric Unicycle is listed first, in the land where the bicycle reigns supreme.

Henrik thanks for sharing this and all your effort to get this law changed, it’s fabulous news !

I love Denmark, and ridden a bike there, it’s wonderful as the public really has adopted bicycle life.

We are stuck in the dark ages in New York City, and have to constantly look over our shoulders as nyc doesn’t allow e bikes, e skateboards or euc’s, it’s pretty pathetic as we have the worst traffic congestion in the world.
