This is the comical moment an ostrich speeds past a group of cyclists taking part in a peloton in South Africa.

Footage shows the flightless bird run alongside the cyclists during their bike race at the Cape Point Nature Park in Cape Town and try to pass the strongest rider who has taken the lead.

With the ostrich showing no signs of stopping, the cyclists are left staring at the creature in disbelief.

During the clip, the large bird darts along the road and passes a number of cyclists along the way.

As the creature continues along the scenic route one cyclist shouts: 'That's good, that's good!'

Within seconds, the ostrich draws closer to the cyclist at the front
