Hi, it appears there are two ways to sync rides from Garmin to Strava.

One option (A) is to import rides from Garmin to Trailforks, and then use the "Sync to Strava" option to get the data to Strava. So Garmin is only connected to TF, and ride data goes from TF to Strava.

The other option (B) is to import rides from Garmin to TF, but not use the "Sync to Strava" option. And to also sync Garmin to Strava. So we have ride data going from Garmin to TF, and Garmin to Strava.

Does anyone have any input on what is a better option--A or B?

Well I use option A.
I like having it sync from Trailforks to Strava, this way the Strava activity auto-generates a title and description from Trailforks that includes the riding area, total descent, trails and url.

The data Strava gets is the same either way. The sync from Garmin-TF-Strava passes the original Garmin FIT data.
