Faces of Experience: Tim Pohlad-Thomas

Experience committee members are involved in a variety of ways throughout the Roanoke Region.

Committee member Tim Pohlad-Thomas works at RIDE Solutions as an outreach and communications specialist, helping to make the region more bike-friendly. In his free time, he’s an outdoor enthusiast and father of two who spends many of his days hiking or camping.
