We have used Route Arrows for several years for our stair climbing race. We share the route with another race that paints arrows, which still show up multiple years after their event. To avoid confusion, we of course use different colors, but having a distinctly different look helps a great deal.
We used ground arrows for a few years, then switched to the arrows on the black signs, with ground arrows in a few places where there is no place to put the signs. This involved an extra investment up front, but we have probably made that up in the last four years because we can reuse the majority of the signs each year. We also find the bright arrows on the black background are so much easier to read. Runners can see them long before they get to their turn and they are powerful reinforcement on long straight stretches.
It is faster to pick up the signs than to pull the arrows post race; neither is too burdensome for our routes, the longest being a half-marathon.
Customer service is exceptional. Randall always responds personally, sometimes by phone. The directions and tips are excellent and much appreciated. I highly recommend these products.
Route Arrows are the best!
We had a bit of trouble marking our courses the day before the Heart of Virginia Bicycle Festival. It rained the night before and was very misty in the morning. The arrows don't stick to wet... well, wet anything. So we tried various methods of drying the road to apply them. Once down, they stayed put, even through light rain early in our event.
Riders like them, they dont stay for years like painted arrows, and are easy to deal with once the event is done.
Win all around!
RouteArrows have been an excellent addition to our bike club's rides. The RouteArrows make course marking easier and quicker. The riders have voiced their preference for courses marked with them. Why RouteArrows? - 1) They are easily seen. 2) They stand out vs painted course marking that can easily blend into other paint already on a road. 3) An abundance of vibrant colors to utilize for marking multiple courses. 4) Easier than painting routes. 5) Biodegradable and break down fairly quickly when put down, as recommended, in the area car tires hit them.
We loved using Route Arrows for our 5K. They are so easy to mark the course with and visible for our participants. Love all the bright color options too!
We've used Route Arrows for our last 3 bicycle tours, on bike trails, paved roads, and gravel roads. We LOVE them! Correct placement makes sure they stay visible. The bio-friendliness makes our riders happy. Great product! Plus, when we had a question, the support response was both fast and friendly!!! 5+ stars!
While this is my first time buying from RouteArrows, the ride I inherited as director in 2020 had used it in prior years and as a rider, I LOVED THEM.
Now that I have made my own purchase, I have experienced a level of support and service beyond my expectations. E-mails were answered promptly, phone conversations were held whenever I asked if they might be willing to have a deeper discussion on a topic and throughout our process this year - fraught with details because of major route changes necessary with various rides coming over top of ours and weather aka IDA aka storms galore with unprecedented rain - I have utmost confidence we are making the best informed decision thanks to Randal and the team at RouteArrows.
Is there anyone else who sells a product like this anyway? Doubtful with this level of support anyway
I used route arrows for two week long tours in Wisconsin. They worked great and were very easy to see. They are easy to apply and remove.
