Thank you for the kind offer. On Monday I will travel from Manchester to London and will be back in Manchester later that day. From Tuesday on I will intending to go somewhere. My starting point is Manchester than. I see Forest of Dean is 235km. The option of going there and meeting up with you and Ed is well worth considering, especially given it is a nice area. However it is not on the route to the boat. That is another consideration. The boat leaves from Hull on Friday evening. 3-4 days should be enough for a 2x 235km extra travel however, I would think.
Another option could possibly go to the north, to Lake District, but I face also making many miles than me thinks.
Moreover the area need to be bike friendly to some extend. I hope to make quite some miles, most on road. I have been told England has excellent cycling paths and very biker friendly drivers, so that should not be a problem
