Nice kit, now get out and use it!!!

Well, to complete the summer outfit, I invested in a pair of string backed gloves from Altura which, in white, give a nice shade of vintage to the riding kit.

These gloves replace my ‘freebie’ ones which I got years ago when buying my first bike.  They are, I have to say, exceptionally comfortable and hopefully won’t discolour too much!

If I had an elderly Rover, then they would also look very appropriate whilst taking a Sunday afternoon drive in the country, holding up the traffic!

So, the economy versions of the famed Rapha gloves, for which a lottery win would be needed.  I’m off out riding now, as the sun is shining!
