Suddenly, 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.
Even thought this looks very funny, it could be dangerous for the cyclists as for the animal itself because of potential close contact with bike or collision with nearby passing car.
If you find yourself in this kind of situation, it is better except if it’s some kind of dangerous animal, to slow or stop your vehicle/bicycle so that the animal can safely pass without becoming excited or threatened to avoid endangering yourself.
