    They should have cut their losses (and saved paint) by just using the green circle and arrow.

    That would be my take on it. I have one recreational route that I ride frequently that has about 4 different colors of arrows on it, they re-mark them every couple of years. One of the routes I know for a fact is a Randonneur permanent.

    It could be done, but it'd be kind of unusual to have any kind of road markings on a permanent. If it's ridden infrequently, nobody would bother marking it; if it's ridden often, everyone has it memorized.

    On the other hand, we do have some randonneuring permanents that were originally (and may still be) local club rides and local charity-ride routes.

    I believe it may have been an old club ride that became a Permanent. I still have cue sheets/maps from club rides we did back in the 1970's and 80's. We typically did not mark turns back then. The only exception being Centuries. You would have a lot of people from out of town that were unfamiliar with the routes, so road marking were a good idea to keep from having to spend half the night sweeping for lost riders.
