Backup should work, as well as checking / confirming that all your contacts exist in Address Book, so that even if backup goes astray for some reason, you can just sync them over ...

Don't know a way to send them from backup - but if you go to the Info tab in iTunes with iPhone plugged in and make sure you choose to sync contacts there, then you should see them show up in Address Book ...
