    Stencil/template for Bike trail sign

    Hi all

    This is first time posting so a short introduction: I manage forest and recreational lands in northern Iceland, and I am currently in the process of building the first dedicated mountain bike trail in this country. I would like to sign the trail well with home made signs made with wood and a router. But I am looking for a striking stencil or template for of a biker that I can borrow. Anybody knows where something like this could be available, or should I just draw my own?

    All tips hugely appreciated!

    Welcome, and conratulations!

    The first thing I'd do is contact IMBA - www.imba.com
    There are a bunch of resources on the site, and they can put you in contact with a bunch of people beyond that.

    I know that there are some fairly well recogonized symbols, but that some areas have done their own as well.

    Good luck,

    given a symbol you like, you should easily be able to create the template, probably use tempered hardboard or if you will do a lot of the sign, maybe HDPE.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?
