Is there a cost? How long is the ride?  I'm interested in riding, trying to decide if I bring family or what.  Sounds like it's just a "fun ride", and looks family friendly, but not much info on the site.

not to mention, the route is different every year. 2 years ago, it went south to Fountain Square and Garfield Park. Last year it went east through Mass Ave and Brookside Park to Rural, to Michigan Rd. and back. I suspect the route this year will be north and/or west to mix things up.

We had fun riding in the slush a couple years ago.  Note:  This is an easy ride.  So, it can be challenging to stay warm unless you dress appropriately.  The gf and I wore ski pants in addition to what we normally wear at that temp.  I think it was 28 deg if I remember correctly.  We were cozy.  Plan to do it again this year.
If you wait for good weather to ride in Indiana you will be waiting forever.
