Prince George is safely set with a unique variety of ways to get around land and water.

Just one day after receiving a petit dinghy, Prince William and Kate Middleton accepted a mini Avanti bike for their eight-month-old son.

Former Olympic cyclist Sarah Ulmer presented the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with the generous gift at the National Cycling Centre of Excellence and Avantidrome in Hamilton, New Zealand on Saturday.

The precious prince, who will now become a cycling expert thanks to this new ride, wasn't there to test it out and take it for a supervised spin; he stayed behind in Wellington with his nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.

"It is a great honor for Catherine and me to be here to pay tribute to New Zealand's cycling heritage and its cycling future," William told the crowd as the royal couple formally opened the Avantidrome. "I know what a special place cycling holds for New Zealanders, and what a beneficial and thrilling sport it is."

Earlier in the day, the 32-year-old shared a laugh with some well-wishers at the town center in Cambridge. Kate grinned widely as she was presented with a rather humorous fake driver's license featuring the third in line to the throne.

That might come in handy soon!

Even with all of the laughs, the baby in the front of the crowd dozed right through his opportunity to meet Kate.
