IRL, I just ride the way that I want to go and meet back up with the plotted route a mile or so down the line. That mile is peppered with suggestions to make u-turns and various re-routes, though - a pain in the butt if you're at a good spot in an audiobook.
When that happens, if you're using RWGPS, you simply switch to "Draw Lines," then once over the difficulty, switch back to Driving or Cycling. I do that a lot. So it's really simple - don't draw your course in Strava! If I did like you say, the group would fire me.
