Hailing from Santa Rosa, Calif., Pat has worked as a mechanic since 2013. In his mid-twenties, he picked up cycling as a way to commute to a job in Sonoma County, where "road biking is unmatched". Needless to say, he fell in love with the sport and the speed of cycling. Of his current four bikes, Pat's favorite is a carbon fiber Trek Madone 9.2. "I'm a roadie, and I'm not ashamed," he explains.
