COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) – Northen Kentucky Trail Enthusiasts, in conjunction with the Devou Park Advisory Committee and the City of Covington would like invite you to the first annual Devou Saturday Afternoon Delight on October 2, 2010, beginning at 12:30 p.m. This is an Open House, Fund Raiser, and Family Fun event showcasing Northern Kentucky's newest trail experience.

Northern Kentucky Mountain Bike Association (NKyMBA) has been approved by the city of Covington to develop 18 miles of trails within city limits.

In the past year, with the dedication of over 500 volunteers working over 3000 hours, two miles of sustainable trail has been constructed. With the addition of mechanical equipment, closer to 7 miles per year could be constructed. The ultimate goal of this fundraiser is to secure enough funds to utilize trail building specific machines.

Parking is at Ludlow ball fields off of Sleepy Hollow Road, across from the bottom of Montague. Trails are on the opposite side of Sleepy Hollow from the developed side of the park.

If you cannot make the event, yet would still like to submit a monetary or in-kind donation, please contact
