Without a PM, the Strava estimate is more of a guess. Unless you're really putting the hammer down, you probably want to reduce those numbers by about 2/3. I don't think a human can burn 2700 calories in 9 miles on a bicycle.

With my PM, and putting out an average of 250W and ~16 hours a week, I burn around 15,000kcal a week.
