Ask A Founder

Highlights from a talk with Tom Ritchey

For the third installment of the Mission Workshop Founders series we are honored to have Tom Ritchey on our stage to learn about the influential brand that shares his name. Ritchey’s love with all things two wheels started early. He built his first frame when he was just 16 years old and started his first company in his early twenties. The shape of cycling would arguably look very different without his involvement.

For the next installment and fourth installment of this project we present to you the relatively unknown founder of one of the cycling world’s leading innovative forces. Mike Sinyard of Specialized will now take your questions. Be part of the event by asking Mike a question via Twitter using “#AskSinyard” as the hashtag. Join us Saturday October 10th at 7PM PST to watch Mike live on
