What's the best way to write your mate's name on the road for a hill climb please?

Early learning centre sell some chunky chalks.  They'd probably be your best bet for writing and not getting arrested if caught, as they'll wash/wear off.

I did meet someone the other day with very chalky fingers.  maybe he'll appear and share his techniques?

or you could be super organised, like me last year, and buy some special road marking pencils, they worked pretty well in Nice

I just phoned them, thanks, semi permanent crayon looks just the job.

Careful with anything that says semi permanent, the semi permanent spray paint I bought takes a couple of years to weather off.  It will not come up even with a scribbing brush and detergent

Chalk is the way forward

oooooo - I remember using those in Nice! It was so hot that they melted as we were using them!

The red looked remarkably like blood...

I bought some standard kids washable paint bottles from somewhere like Wilkinsons, a bit messy but good for stencilling.
