OK Andreas, I think I've begun to understand your itinerary.
Cycling through Cheshire and Lancashire is a treat as John J would confirm, so your trip from Manchester to Liverpool should be very enjoyable. Most of the local folk clubs close during late July and August, so I don't know what singing or music sessions will be available.
If you are looking for somewhere to stay on Merseyside before you sail to the Isle of Man you are most welcome here. You can email me at "matthew.rwedwards[no.spam]btopenworld.com"
