I want to curate routes that are downloaded from Strava and for only some of my routes there to import to my Routes manager site. Is this possible?

Yes. you can decide what status imported routes from Strava get either choosing Draft or Published. By Choosing Draft you will then have to publish the route manually through the Routes Manager settings.

Does the Strava integration add-on only download my public route activity or can it also download my private activity as well?

It can do either. You can configure it to public and private activity from Strava. This is done through the add-on configuration settings.

Can I Import / Export routes between Routes manager and Strava in bulk or only individually?

It’s possible to do both. You can import or export routes either individually or apply a mass import or mass export of routes across all of the routes on your site or strava profile.

Are routes downloaded / uploaded between my Routes manager routes and Strava automatically or do I need to trigger it manually?

You can trigger them manually or automatically depending on your preference. If you prefer you can do both, leaving the scheduled imports and exports running while triggering them manually when needed. Duplicates are not created by the add-on.

Why are the routes displaying this message ("To send this route to Strava please set the Strava activity type first")?

For routes that display this message you have not set a Strava activity type which is required for all Strava routes. Either while initially creating or later editing an existing route make sure to choose one.
