Near the end of January, B’yauling Toni, an 18-year-old from Saskatoon rolled into his hometown. He had ridden for 206 days, through 16 countries and a total of 30,804 km. Upon completing his ride, he has become the youngest person to bike around the world unsupported. Canadian Cycling Magazine web editor Philippe Tremblay spoke with Toni a little more than a week after he had finished his trip. The rider speaks about equipment choices and tells stories of falling ill, herding sheep from a motor bike and eating fresh goat tongue.
