How accurate is Strava for the distance
Distance differences between the Strava and the cycle computer
There's a combination of two things that could be going on here. 1- The GPS track you have has some uncertainty (+ - 1 to 10 m, depending on the signal quality). Depending on the sampling frequency, it may appear like you're working in a zigzag, adding a little bit of space to your actual path. Some algorithms can smooth this out, but it's not 100% accurate.
2- The display of your bike computer may be based on the speed sensor which uses the rotation of your bike and the diameter of that bike. It multiplies the number of revolutions by the circumference of the tire to get the total distance traveled. There is a setting in your bike computer with which you can change the tire circumference and make it more precise. The scope depends on your wheel size, tire size, air pressure and wear. If it is not accurate, you will receive an incorrect distance measurement: https://www.cateye.com/data/resources/Tire_size_chart_ENG.pdf lists some of the circumferences for different wheel and tire sizes
