Even the thinnest merino leggings I can find and in a short 3/4 length are much too warm when the temperatures really rise under my goretex trousers. I tried not wearing anything except my M&S briefs but my skin sticks horribly and uncomfortably to the trouser's lining so it seems I definitely need something under. I have been looking at cycling or running type lycra shorts but they have gone all technical and expensive since I last bought anything like that. A pair of Knox Jesse shorts look decent although a bit more than I wanted to spend but could be worn off the bike by the looks of things. https://www.planet-knox.com/product/jesse-baselayer-shorts/ Anyway, any thoughts? What do you wear?
