Did you upload to Garmin Connect, or Golden Cheetah (freeware) and see what it says? I'm sure it would also be different.
The distance bit could just be rounding errors used by the programs.
Calories used on the other hand is a crap shoot at best. There are a tonne of threads, not only here on BF, but others such as Garmin, that refute the calories reported.
On a recent ride I had done Garmin Connect reports 2,784 calories; Strava reports 4,806. Small difference there eh? </sarcasam>
I have a power meter and the 'work' reported by Garmin is 4,290kJ, Strava reports 4,310kJ and Golden Cheetah reports 4,301kJ.
I'm buying into the kJ bit but not the calorie bit.
