Autumn is approaching us fast in the UK, but you can delay the onset of chilly days and howling winds with the three-day Tour of Menorca Sportive running over October 17-19.
The 14th edition of the event takes place on the tranquil Balearic island of Menorca, with warm weather, rolling road closures and great scenery to finish off your summer season.

Each day of the event features a different route, out and back from the base in the island’s capital of Mahon. As you would expect, the event features mechanical and medical back-up, well stocked feed stops and a broom wagon if it all gets too much.
For those who want a bit more a a challenge, there are two timed hill climbs, taking place on the Saturday and Sunday, with age-related prizes on offer for the fastest combined times.
The event concludes on Sunday with a post-ride dinner.
Entry for all three days costs just €58 (around £45.17) per person. Several British airports have direct flights to Mahon, and the town has numerous hotels.
