A training ride gets interesting as an Ostrich decides to tag along at speeds in excess of 50km/h.

An ostrich managed to tag onto the back wheel of two cyclists riding down towards the Cape of Good Hope on Friday.

With speeds clocking in excess of 50km/h, the ostrich kept pace with ease, following the riders for a minute before pulling off and heading back for the Cape wilderness.

What did you make of the Ostrich’s training run? What would you do if an Ostrich started tailing you on your weekend ride? Let us know on Twitter @TheCitizen_News
