Cindy "Cindo" Faas
Continuing our series on meeting the One Aim team, our next team mate hardly needs an introduction.
One of the many canser survivors on One Aim, she’s also our most published blogger. She openly shared shared the story of her diagnosis, treatment, survival, and overall canser journey with the world through her My Inner Ninja blog.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Cindy Faas.
Cindy was a first time rider in 2015 and was joined on the ride by her husband Phil. They purchased themselves a pair of matching road bikes (so cute!) and quickly became regulars on any and all training rides they could attend.
Cindy has quickly become a “social event” organizer with One Aim, having hosted team BBQ’s and arranging seating at Kildare’s for the Thursday night rides. Cindy also put together an amazing 3 part post on her Ride to Conquer Cancer which is definitely worth a read.
Here is some more information about Cindy straight from the women herself:
Tell us about yourself Cindy?
Party loving, Breast cancer survivor (2 years March 31!) all weather camper, rookie rider, Nigel worshipping, Guinness loving, wordy blogger, mamma of 2 great kids and incredibly lucky wife to best half & teammate Phil
How many times have you done the RTCC?
2016 will be my 2nd RTCC.
Why do you Ride Cindy?
To honour my Dad who died from pancreatic canser. To show others there is life after canser diagnosis. Cause of Matt Anderson's story. Also cause Nigel told me I could do it haha!
We want to meet you Cindy Faas, where might we find you?
You can find me on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday rides with One Aim. If I’m not there, then check the pub!
What kind of bike do you ride?
Bought my first (& only!) road bike April 2015...it's a small Norco Valence (2014 model?). Love it but I'm sure there's room for another ....isn't the rule 1 bike per year? (Editors comment: Yes, something like that!)
