Got a lend of a turbo trainer for some indoor use, any recommendations for good plans to build up leg speed/strength or do I invest in a zwift sub and follow the plans on there?

Any suggestion for a lap top for first year student - looking to get one as it looks as if learning/homework etc. is only going one way now!!

Just a basic one for the school work etc.

Types, prices and where are they best deals etc. all welcome.

Chromebook may be a good option for this, my eldest has one for the exact same reason.

Rather than start a new thread.

Has any of your clubs installed a rebound wall? Any recommendations for suppliers/installers?

Is there many on here involved with club nurseries? How have ye handled the return to play with this group? Are parents allowed to hand around?
They actually have to stay
They complete the health questionnaire for the child so they must accompany them onto the pitch. We get them to hold the child's bottle and stat along the fence or sideline
It's up to them to keep 2m between themselves and other parents

We make them sit in their cars during training. They can put the window down if it's not raining.

I've finally cracked and agreed to strip two rooms of wallpaper. It's been there 16 years +.
1. hire a machine...I've read it can take lumps out of wall
2. Spray water and some washing up liquid on to paper leave soak and start scraping.
3. Leave well enough alone...is not an option
Please help

use a steam machine

I've a brother with flights booked from Finland into Dublin and then plans to travel home to Armagh, has anyone any idea what the story is with the 2 week isolation period can he do that at home or does he have to book somewhere in Dublin to do it? He'd be travelling with his partner and 2 young kids which is stressful enough at the best of times. Is there any update on the defined air bridge countries that was talked about so travellers from certain countries would be exempt for the isolation period?

See the local Primary school getting a delivery of Portacabins. I can recall getting a bit of ridicule for suggesting Portacabins as a potential route out of the social distancing conundrum. ???
Which school Benny - CBS?
If so numbers for the Bunscoil starting Sept are enough for 2 Rang 1 classes, could possibly be preplanning for future demand.

I've a pair of Shimano spd 520 pedals on and the left one is making a clicking when pressing down. I've seen on YouTube I can strip the pedal and fill it with gear again.

Question - what type of grease should I be using?

I've a couple of weak internet spots in the house and I'm looking at using a WiFi extender to help boost the signal. Has anyone used these before? Any recommendations?

Was thinking of getting a new bike and a child seat to get out and about with the kids a bit during lock-down. I assume a Hybrid is the way to go but would welcome any recommendations either for a bike or the child seat!
I have this cyclocross bike a year now https://www.halfords.com/bikes/adventure-bikes/voodoo-limba-mens-adventure-bike---52-54.5-57cm-frames-445554.html. Got this purely for the same reason as you, wanted something I could put a seat on/off easily enough. Works well with this seat https://www.halfords.com/cycling/bike-accessories/child-bike-seats/polisport-bubbly-mini-head-tube-109838.html. My youngest just turned 4 and it's no bother scooting around with him on the back.

Without the seat, I've had the bike out on the road and off road.
