Frequently Asked Questions

What Are RouteArrows?

Originally designed for route marking on cycling events and tours, RouteArrows are easy to use peel-n-stick paper arrows, that are now universally used for runs, walks and a diverse range of event types! They are 3” wide x 11.9” long, and come in rolls of 250 or 50 adhesive arrow stickers.

They are available in a rainbow of 10 High Visibility colors, and they have a strong, non-toxic, adhesive that sticks to any clean, dry, paved road surface. Since they are just paper, they will be worn away by average daily traffic!

Can RouteArrows be easily removed?


RouteArrows are a unique eco-friendly product, designed to be worn away by daily traffic, but also easily removed if needed.

Letting them biodegrade greatly reduces the time, effort, risk and fuel expense incurred with route marking an event.

But if they need to be removed (from trails or paths, etc) there are two options.

1) The ”Tab to Grab” method: Place them out of traffic so they won’t be as abraded and worn. When placing each arrow, fold the tip under just a bit (~1/4″) to create a small ”Tab to Grab”. To remove them, use your finger or a metal tool / “picker” to lift that tip, or front edge and then pull them up. This option works best with “fresh”, unworn arrows.

2) The Water method: Use this method if they are already well pressed down, well worn by traffic, or many days old. Wet the arrow; use a wire “block brush” attached to a threaded broom handle and brush them into mush that will quickly biodegrade.

How many RouteArrows do I need for my event?

For Cycling Events:
Our time-tested route marking method uses 5 RouteArrows per turn. With 250 arrows per roll, that allows for up to 50 marked points per roll. Therefore, if you have more than 45 turns per route, you should consider a 2nd roll of that same color to be safe.

In addition to turns, RouteArrows are also very helpful and often needed in and out of start / finish areas, rest stops, on signage or on an info sign at check-in etc. Having extra arrows in SAG or support vehicles is a good idea too!

For Running and Walking Events:
Two choices! Marking just the turns (like cycling events) with 4-5 Arrows or use "the bread crumb method", where you also place arrows (1-3) at given intervals ie. every 10th of a mile, 1/4k etc. to keep participants on route and motivated!

Based on your chosen interval, you can calculate the number of arrows needed based on your route length(s).

What are the Different RouteSign Options?

We have 4 unique types of RouteSigns, they are all: Reusable, Lightweight, Compact, & All Weather!

All of our Signs have perimeter holes to easily attach them to your stake, or existing hardware.

1) RouteFlectiv Signs: 12x12 inch square black and white signs, available in many Hi-Viz Reflective Arrow color options.

2) Blank Signs: Available in both black and white, 12x12 inch square signs, to be used with your RouteArrows.

3) Trail Signs: 8x8 inch squares of both black and white signs with numerous Reflective and Non-Reflective Arrow color options.

PRO TIP: We offer Reusable Zip-Ties in two lengths and 57 inch RouteCords to attach these signs to larger objects like trees, poles, etc!

What if it rains on or before the event?

After being placed on dry roads, RouteArrows will survive a mild to moderate rain assuming very light traffic. If your event historically experiences lots of rain, RouteArrows might not be the best route marking method for you.

RouteArrows will not survive moderate to heavy rain when placed out in traffic as they are just paper. But, if rain is forecast just before or on your event, place RouteArrows (on dry roads) out of the traffic pattern to increase their lifespan.

For events in potentially or consistently damp environments we suggest using our Blank Signs with your RouteArrows on them, or RouteFlectiv or Trail Signs (totally waterproof)!
