I rode the OBCDR section 5 with Apple Jam. What he says is the way it should be done. There are ways to speed it up some and not leave any one behind. If you wait for everybody at all the intersections no matter how fast you ride, you will cut your distance down. This is very true the larger the group. I suggest that you have a time (about an hour) so that when that time has elapsed your leader picks the intersection and waits for everyone. In between this time period you always wait for the rider behind you at every intersection, and then you go when you know that person is there. I worked out with the guy who was usually behind me a signal system. I would park in the intersection facing where I needed to go. When the next rider saw me he would give me the arm signal of the direction that he needed to turn. I knew he saw me and where to go and would then go on and he would wait for the next rider. If everyone does this it helps to speed it up a little.
