I needn't have worried though, as one call to Julie from Hood Jeans, put my mind at ease.

After my brothers horrendous bike accident in September 2016 I find that safety whilst biking is regularly on my mind.  Not to the point of being worried or nervous or affecting my biking particularly, just a little more awareness of what can go wrong on a sunny Sunday on a road you know well.

The traction control system is an acronym for TCS. It is a system that controls the traction of the driving wheels of a vehicle.
