Video: Ostrich Chases Cyclists in South Africa

When most of us set out for ride on our road bikes we expect to face the regular challenges, like steep hills, changing weather conditions, traffic, and so on. But in South Africa, the unusual wildlife can create new obstacles that the rest of us never have to worry about. Case in point, in this video a team of cyclists are chased by a very determined – and very fast – ostrich, who seems intent on running them down. Watching this giant bird chasing them down the road definitely elicited a chuckle on my end.
