Welsh League at Kingswood. 7.8km Brown course.
Green map and lots of brambles, but planning meant we avoid most (except near the start) - and most of the green blocks were passable. Did 2 as a very long dog-leg as it started out quite bramble. OK through the low vis at 9 - but left 10 thinking I was going south when was actually going SW so was wrong side of "crossing point" (no idea why it was there - brambles no worse than anywhere else...) and the ride I found was inpenetrable bramble so gave away I was in wrong place.
More time loss on 12 - had a bit of mental blank and forgot I had to cross a path. Unsure on rote to take to 13 so decided to chance the green and found a nice track through. Worst was getting through to control at end.
Didn't spot the flatter route to 15 (didn't look) as went back over the hill as what I had planned earlier on. Reasonably quick.Then slow walk up hill for last time, slow down through the brambles. Biggest loss of the day on 20 (c. 60s) as it seemed a lot further down than I would have expected.
Quite a nice course. Feedback for next time this is used... The start and finish were on Offa's Dyke Path only 2k out of Monmouth - it would have been far nicer to park in Monmouth and walk/run out that it was the 20+ mins stressful drive each way on a track that wasn't suitable for cars at all.
