It's a rail for hooking bicycle saddles over, at a cafe in Newburgh.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...

Thank-you!

That was the first Helms cartoon to really make me laugh; it's stuck with me ever since, but couldn't find it online (and it's not in the recent compilation book).
Do you know the date of publication?

I might have assumed they were referring to some of the folks who might park there without bikes ;)

I'm not sure how you equate election failure with the daily imposition of Labour's wishes by this government, flying in the face of fuming Conservative MPs. I don't quite know how Milliband, Starmer et al managed it, but managed it they have. I don't agree wih their policies but I'm certainly impressed by how they get them implemented.
