It was the annual Cape Argus cycle tour yesterday, but for a few cyclists it may not have been the highlight of the weekend. Oleksiy Mishchenko and his mates went for a warm up ride to Cape Point on Friday and got chased down by an angry ostrich.
According to Mishchenko ‘I spotted a white ostrich on my left, then this beast jumped on the road from the right and started chasing my friends! It was a little scary at first, but then I thought I gonna fell of my bike from laughter. The ostrich didn’t have any problem to keep up at 50km/h and apparently they do 70km/h with no sweat.
Luckily the creature decided to leave us alone, as we were running out of road.’
Luckily it never managed to catch them.
