The first day of the tour had all of the riders meet in Mongolia's capital and largest city, Ulan Batar to get a sense of Mongolia before heading out to the countryside.
The group of brave one-wheeled riders received some strange reactions and glances from passerby. While the group took in Mongolia, it took them in as well. The crowded city sidewalks proved to be treacherous -- but there were still rocky roads and river crossings to come.
