CHICAGO (CBS) -- It was a proud day Friday for some Chicago graduates.

At the Working Bikes warehouse, 2434 S. Western Ave., about a dozen students received certificates after completing a six-week mechanic bike training program.

The program is a partnership between the Working Bikes Warehouse, Lyft/Divvy, and the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Each graduate received a set of bike lights, a bike pump, and a patch kit – as well as a yearlong membership to Divvy.

Working Bikes repairs bikes all over Chicago, and also sends refurbished bikes at Africa and Central America.
