1. Im just wondering, if it takes me 35/40 minutes to walk somewhere, how long will it take me on a pushbike?

Ive never properly used a bike so just wondered.
2. It depends entirely on velocity.

edit: Velocity depends on other factors but time of travel depends on velocity.
3. It also depends on how busy the streets are, if you have to cycle on the road in Manchester.
4. Going up/down hill? Flat ground? What gear? How heavy are you? Hair colour? How much have you eaten that day? Seeing you're a girl how big/heavy are your breasts?

Take all of these factors into account and you'll be able to get an accurate reading on how quickly you shall reach your destination.

These are some of the factors to which I was referring in my post

That's one of countless factors. In short, we could give you an answer but it will more likely be wrong than right.
8. average is 20mins to walk a mile

so you've got roughly 2 miles there

average cycling speed is about let's say 15mph

so 8 minutes.

course, it depends whether you walk/cycle faster than average.

Finally, thanks Not sure if I cycle the average speed but still.
