JT/Pat Cunnane

One of the things I enjoy most about hosting a podcast is that sometimes I get the opportunity to interview people who’ve found something they're passionate about, and they turn that passion into a career. This week’s guest, Pat Cunnane, is a prime example of someone who’s done just that. 

Pat and I have few things in common, we both love bikes, and we’ve both spent our formative years turning wrenches as bike mechanics at a local bike shop (not the same bike shop). What we don’t have in common, is how we envisioned our future working in the bicycle industry. Where I never saw much of a career path, Pat saw an opportunity to build a career doing something he absolutely loved. And that vision took him from a poorly paid bike shop mechanic, to president of arguably one the biggest bike companies in the world. Pat has played an interracial part in the world of cycling and was an absolute pioneer in the development in modern day mountain biking. We discuss Pats' rise through the ranks in the cycling industry and some of the trials and tribulations, personally and professionally, along the way. For more information about Pat’s is current project, check out Yuba Bikes.
