If you use Garmin, then the assumption is that you'll be using Garmin Connect and likewise, if you use Wahoo then you'll be connected to whatever it is Wahoo has for its fitness tracking platform. You should be able to access either via website or mobile phone app, and see all the appropriate information there.

You could use a program like Golden Cheetah and save the odometer number in the notes for each ride. A spreadsheet would also work.

Low-tech solution: put a cheap wired cyclecomputer on each bike.

Garmin has an App Store called ‘connectIQ’ that can add features and data fields to Garmin computers. There is Odometer+ that has an odometer field and also allows you to make yearly and monthly goal fields as well. Checked and it works with the 530.

I just got a Garmin Edge 530 after using an Edge 500 forever. On the newer Garmin's that allow you to set up profiles your total mileage is given for that profile. So if you want it per bike, then you can set up a profile for each bike. Also, it gives the aggregate distance for everything the device has done.

You can associate your ride with a bike on most sites using whatever means they've established to do that.

WTF? You asked if there was an easy way to get an odometer reading from a Garmin computer, and I told you how to do it. You push the buttons on the (Garmin Edge 530) bike computer to access the main menu and submenus. The first submenu is the "History" submenu. The second submenu is the "Totals" submenu:

Menu > History > Totals

If you find my posts snarky, then you've got some serious issues.

It means exactly what it says. On a Garmin 530/830/1030 I believe, you press the Menu button, then the History button then the Totals button and you have your totals, which is the same as an odometer.

Instead of asking very basic questions that give others zero clues as to your needs with a unit, why don't you do some online research on Garmins and Wahoos that others have recommended, like download a manual or something. In other words make it look like your making an effort that I'm not seeing and is why you are getting snarky replies.
