CHICO, Calif. -  Chico pedi-cab operator Mike G-Ride is hard to miss if you visit Downtown Chico.

He cheerfully pedals through town with music blasting, waiving at people and offering rides. He's well known for his colorful costumes that accompany holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, St. Patrick's Day, July 4th and even Valentine's Day.   

He's so popular that he has been voted "Best Personality" for the past three years in the Chico News and Review's "Best of Chico" and was named an Official Chico Icon by the Facebook group "You Know You're from Chico When...."

Mike has agreed to be roasted to raise money for Camp Fire victims on Sunday, Feb. 24 at the Chico Women's Club. 

Celebrity Roasters include Action News Now Anchor Linda Watkins-Bennett, Chico City Councilwoman Ann Schwab, 102.1 DJ Jigga Julee and 106.7 DJ Frost. 

Local Comedian Roasters include Jason Allen, Nick Stiles, Annie Fischer, Dillon Collins, Jesse Clark, Shydney Hupp, Drew McGillicuddy and E.V.E., as well as Jesse Hett of San Francisco.

Some showers are expected in your Monday forecast, but will mostly be in the northern end of the valley and mountains. Scattered mountain showers linger Tuesday, then dry and warmer weather takes hold for the middle of the week. Wet weather returns next weekend.
