A word about my riding clothes which have served well today. Despite the rain I arrived dry and relatively warm.
BMW rallye 2 jacket and BMW trousers (not sure which model) provide a really good waterproof skin. I usually wear a thermal vest of some sort and a Paramo reversible walking shirt. Depending on the prevailing temperature I sometimes wear thermal leggings, but mostly I find the trousers are enough. Long socks are good. I have a pair of X-socks which are brilliant, but also have some Aldi specials, which will probably not last so well, but cost a lot less and do the job.
Altberg Roadrunner boots http://www.altberg.co.uk/product/roadrunner/ are brilliant. Handmade to order in Richmond North Yorkshire, these are as comfy as good walking boots, and just as waterproof.
The only bit of my kit that I'm not entirely satisfied is my gloves. Most of the time they are fine, a thick pair for cold and a thin pair for warm weather. Neither are waterproof though, and even with the heated grips going wet hands get cold.
Not many photos today as the camera and phone were secured from the weather.
