Yes, the ’no flame’ poses a huge problem. I am sorry that your plans get disturbed.
I will notify this thread if the Swedish media mentions that the fire ban gets lifted!
I would move mu trip a month or two if I was you.
No foubt the ban will be lifted by then.
September weather should be fine. Still fine weather, less mosquitoes and midgets.
It has been hot. Hot weather = mozzies and midges have veritable orgies and breed in huge numbers.
Trust me, you have never experienced that.
Even here in the Caribbean the mozzies are nothing compared to Scandinavia after a hot week!
Before Coprnhagen go to Roskilde just West of C., a superb Viking ship museum there.
Copenhagen to Malmo ( submarine, marine museum)
to Lund ( cathedral ) to Helsingborg then coast road north to Mölle, follow coastal rads to Göteborg, road north to the islands Tjörn and Orust, then North east to Trollhättan, Vänersborg, north to Åmål, Charlottenberg.
Do not miss Oslo: some superb museums, specially the Viking museum.
I would try to take the ferry back from Kristiansand in southern Norway to Hirthals in Denmark and go south from there.
You will have a fantastic trip!
Just out of interest, are you planning to try to cycle mainly on lesser ( gravel) roads?
As little on main roads as possible?
