Weather wise, there's more difference in rainfall between East and West of the Pennines than there is between most months. Also if you go looking for the rainfall statistics, make sure you look at duration as well as volume, though April through to July have similar volume the duration is different.
Plan all you like, in the end it's going to come down to luck. Mine started in the worst of weather and ended in the best with no neutral days between.

Hi,
My adventure starts in 30 - 37 days I hope.
A long shot which will probably crucify me :(
Good luck, my southern to northern end will probably be next year unless my next adventure goes well this year, hears hoping / dreaming :)

I'm hoping for at least dry weather. I've cycled through Lake District into Scotland last year, as far as Fort William and I got mostly very dry and bright overcast days from around end June to mid July. Even though the temperatures were high last summer, it was still very comfortable 25C in Scotland.

Fingers crossed for the same/similar this year.
