The Main Cast
Co-Owner + Chief Executive Officer
Co-Owner + Chief Production Officer
Chris has been with Bike-On for close to 13 years and has worked his way up from tinkering in Scott’s backyard to co-owner & Chief executive officer. When not working, you can find him swinging some clubs, and doing some yard work with his beagles rolling around, all while paying close attention to whatever New England sports team is playing that day. What does he enjoy most about being on this team? “Knowing I have the opportunity to be a part of something that can change the world, one customer at a time”.

Director, Business Development
Steve Chapman has over 30 years of experience in durable medical and adaptive sports equipment sales, and he’s an accomplished para-athlete.

Since then, he has become an accomplished athlete, competing at the national level in hand cycling, wheelchair basketball, and tennis. He is passionate about the outdoors and getting others involved in adaptive sports & he dedicates much of his free time to supporting new para-athletes.
Marketing + Events Manager
Vanessa fell into the event planning industry after college and has planned scientific conferences, weddings, national trade shows, virtual shows, etc… You name it, she’s probably dabbled in it. When she’s not working, she’s probably with her family of two beagles, baby boy, and her other half or exploring the food scene. In the event/marketing industry, it’s always been super rewarding to see your hard work come to life, but it’s that much more rewarding when you get to make a positive impact in so many lives!
Kyle is known as the ‘Dwight Schrute’ of Bike-On for his attention to detail, punctuality, and obscure knowledge of everything. He loves working with the sales reps and watching them grow and learn about the industry and the adaptive community. When he’s not working (which is very rare!) you can find him riding his recumbent, playing with his 90-pound bundle of joy mixed breed dog named Aurora, a lap dog in a pit bull’s body who will attack you with love. He loves working with like-minded people that want to help the adaptive community grow!
