The commandments of winter riding

It must assumed, dear reader, that at least one of the commandments of winter riding reads something like as follows: Thou shalt not brag about having ‘solved’ the problem of rear tyre punctures lest one be struck down by said puncture on the first ride of the New Year.

Surely there is an expression in Italian for this as well.

Perhaps one of the other commandments could be: Thou shalt not worry over the expense (minimal relative to other cycling purchases) or waste (again minimal relative to other waste) of CO2 canisters and enjoy their rapid inflation benefits instead of fumbling with a pump in the cold.

Just a thought.
