I think what Matt2 is hinting at is to do with B&Bs etc suddenly having to close. Actually being on the road is a lot less chance of being infected. Currently parts of East Lanc's has gone into local lockdown and this could happen anywhere. Could be worth checking the next nights destination the night before.
I think the trick is going to be to stick to more rural areas as restrictions seem to be mainly in conurbations.
Yes, I'm aiming for a rural route and will be thinking ahead about accomm and also checking on what's booked - they don't have to be put in lockdown to choose to shut. My default schedule is the Wimps' one but I'm aiming to stay flexible on route and accomm.
The Greater Manchester area is clearly the toughest part to get through but from what I've seen, there are routes that currently should be okay - but by mid September who knows?
