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.
