ROUTEARROWS are the first and only truly specific product for marking cycling event routes. These 3” x 11.9” peel and stick paper arrows come in rolls of 250 in eight high visibility colors. They have a strong adhesive to stick to almost any road surface, and being just paper, they disintegrate from traffic wear leaving no trace! With all the effort needed to organize today's cycling events, why risk its success with a poorly marked route? As an avid cyclist for over thirty years, a route guide author and cycling club event route director, I created ROUTEARROWS with this simple goal:
To enhance the cycling experience! Randall Braun
Routearrows have been called course markers, road markers, route markers, race markers, and road arrows, and they're now used for triathlons, running races, walkathons and other events!
What makes ROUTEARROWS superior to other marking methods?

- High visibility colors for well marked turns so riders will stay safely and happily on route.
- Fast and easy application, just seconds per arrow, so less time spent marking your route.
- Not permanent as spray paint is considered. Some event markings are still visible for years.
- Unique shape and colors virtually eliminates conflicts with other "official" utility markings.
- Economical. Consider cost per rider. ROUTEARROWS are a real enhancement of your cycling event!
- Safer for your marking crew due to less time spent placing them and by not needing to remove them.
- Less fuel used by not driving the route twice to remove the markings after your event.
- Not prone to vandalism or wind movement like above ground “easel” signs can be.
- Cleaner. No messy spray paint or chalk on your hands, shoes and clothing and no paint fumes.
- The right size to be easily seen by the cyclists, but not to distract motorists.
- Versatile. Other uses include road hazard marking, mileage points, view points, rest stops, etc.
"Due to the use of the RouteArrows, many riders commented
that they never even looked at their route maps.
The RouteArrows helped make the ride a great success."
-Tom A. Logsdon, 2007 Tour de Foothills ride.
"As the organizer of two cycling events--and an avid cyclist--I know the importance of well marked routes.
I've used Routearrows for the last three years. They're easy to apply, clean, and biodegradable,
which translates to less work marking--and "unmarking"--the course.
Those fabulous colors are easy to spot;
it's tough to confuse a Routearrow with a marking placed by a utility company or public works department.
And, I've noticed Routearrows on an increasing number of rides. Excellent choice!"
