Ostrich goes for a run alongside cyclists

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE Ky. (WDRB) -- An ostrich in South Africa goes for a run alongside some cyclists.

Oleksiy Mishchenko uploaded this video to YouTube.

Mishchenko says the cyclists were warming up for the Cape Argus tour when they were joined by an unexpected, and very fast, visitor.

The ostrich jumped on the road and started chasing them, or perhaps trying to race.

The bikers say they were traveling around 30 miles per hour, but say they're told ostriches can reach up to 43 miles per hour!

The video has more than one million views on YouTube.
