I put on deodorant in the morning, and I don't race, I just go ~16-17 km/h (on average, that is; faster on straight stretches, like ~20 km/h). On a normal city bike, not a racing bicycle. I might get a little sweaty sometimes, but never so much that I got smelly. (Edit: typo)

For what it's worth, I do exactly the same thing with the same result.

Ditto. Hills can add some sweatiness even if you go very slowly, if your range of gears isn't wide enough.
