Order and placement are important here.  You would need to make sure that
the DOS equivalent of '/usr/bin' was added to the path cron sees
before it is launched.  You could either specify this as a parameter to
the installation of the cron service service (see the help for 'cygrunsrv')
or add it to your system-wide path in the Windows GUI.
