Talk about an epic bike ride! Navajo college student Tuff Fowler is currently on a mission to bike ride across America to inspire youth in their educational pursuits.

From Fowler's GoFundMe page:

My name is Tuff Fowler. I am student at Dixie State University. I am currently biking across America from the US-Canada border to the US-Mexico border. I am performing this bike tour to promote and inspire youths in continue on to higher education. I had the great privilege of meeting many tribal leaders and striving students on my journey thus far and I can't wait to meet more as I continue on with my journey.

He started his journey May 9th at the USA-Canada Border in Turner, Montana and he hopes to finish May 30th at Tuscan, Arizona.

He's met some wonderful tribal leaders along the way and even had the chance to stop by the Ute Graduation Pow Wow and Bear Dance at Fort Duchesne, UT.


“I got the amazing privilege of meeting Miss Ute, Natasha Smalls, and Ute Councilman, Shaun Chapoofe.”


He is currently in Utah and still going strong!
