You could always draw a dick in the shape of anna bligh? I'm sure if you find a local skatepark and offer $10-20 each for them to do the deed you'll have helpers a-plenty

could use a water based paint diluted down a bit so that in a few months the weather and cars will remove it also often water based is good to the planet. Chalk will last a day and may be slippery (if put on thick, think talc powder) for the riders trying to power up a hill. If its checkers hill I am keen, but not very artistic:)

Whatever is used, I would hope that it is specifically chosen to not affect the grip/resistance or other normal properties of the road. For obvious reasons.

Use anything but chalk - and you are asking for unwanted attention.

Chalk wouldn't be used at events such as the Tour de France if it was slippery, wet or dry.

The difference betweeen the TDU and the TOC is that our event is fun. Its the event more and more pro's love to ride, and the fans and organisors embrace and encourage everyone to go nuts.

Hey Womble, I didn't know you were such a pro.
You spend so much time on the forum; seriously I thought you didn’t even have a bike.
Oh, please no paint. Chalk is the way to go. I am with Nate and Drunkmonkey on that.

I can give the chalk a go but I assume it will need to be done the night before the event and I am told by my bro inlaw (who is an orriffcer of the law) that the bacon will be patroling the area in the lead up to each stage. Is there a law against drawing on the road??. I know you can get done for loitering or something similar if you are standin in the middle of the road doing stuff to stop traffic. I think Checkers will be dead for traffic apart from a few locals.
Anyone know where to get huge bits of chalk?? and lots of it??
