Cath’s bootcamp vacation

After missing out on the Tour du Mont Blanc, Cath longed for the bootcamp experience.
What followed were a few days riding over some of the high passes of the French and Swiss alps.  Truth be told, it was great fun – and not the cycle-touring sufferfest that another 3fidi rider had thrown herself into (nice effort Libby).
