So imagine this, you are a bike rider, you and your friends are going to take part in the Cape Argus Tour in South Africa and the day before you decide to take a warm-up ride down to the Cape of Good Hope on the Southern tip of Africa. Somewhere along the way you pick up a new friend.

In this case, these guys picked up an ostrich, chasing them for, well your guess is as good as anyone's I suppose.

The funny thing is it didn't seem to want to catch the riders, it was just keeping a good pace with them at about 30 MPH, as I understand it an ostrich can do almost twice that when they push it.

Guess he was just in the mood to run.
