Zero, I never use Strava and usually can't be bothered to mount my GPS.While I'm sometimes curious about distance I never want to get into competition over who climbs x the fastest

I tried Strava for my first relatively long ride at the beginning of spring and didn't like it, so exactly 70 miles. I did contribute 6930 miles to Komoot however.

I just use my cell phone and run Komoot on it. It doesn't do all that leaderboard crap, and it gives me real time speed and distance, which are generally the stats I'm interested in.

None.
0.
I don't 'get it' -- Strava, let alone Zwift and all the other contraptions -- and never will.
Quite happy just to pile up unrecorded kms. each year. But that's just me; carry on.

Guessing 2500. All my rides auto upload from GPS to strava, but I only look at it every couple months and I haven't looked since probably october.

Strava and GPS apps have tracked zero of my miles.
YMMV

This will be the first year in a while I've not hit 6,000...blame injury and a cross-country move

Zero. Nada. Zilch. None. I don't use Strava or any other app, don't have a GPS of any type of distance/speed measuring device on any of my bicycles. I just get on the bike and ride.
