Longview's Rowell Continues American Adventure

One East Texas athlete is proving his skill in endurance. Longview's Eric Rowell.

KLTV 7 Sports first told you about  Eric's mission to ride across America for the Bike and Build charity. Monday, we received an update on Eric's progress.

Eric began his journey in early June in Providence, Rhode Island. He is currently in Dubois Wyoming. Eric's group has traveled more than 2,200 miles, stopping in towns to help build homes for families. During the next leg of the journey, they will have to travel across mountains.

The group expects to reach Seattle by the middle of August.
