With Suri off exploring New York City with dad Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes was able to indulge in a little me-time Wednesday, and headed to a Big Apple spin class while her ex, 50, and little girl, 6, bonded.

Frequently taking Suri to kid-friendly NYC spots including the Children's Museum, Chelsea Piers and eatery Alice's Teacup, a fatigued-looking Holmes, 33, kept to herself as she entered a SoulCycle facility solo, casually dressed in black leggings, a tan top and red jacket.

Arriving in NYC on Tuesday, Cruise flew in from California (where he's been shooting Oblivion) to reunite with his daughter for the first time since he and Holmes finalized their divorce and custody agreement July 9.

On the agenda for Cruise and his No. 1 girl? A trip to Suri's favorite gymnastics haunt, Chelsea Piers, and a helicopter ride.

A source tells Us Weekly Cruise is anxious to fit in as much bonding time with Suri as possible. "He adores Suri, but now he's afraid he won't be able to have a close relationship with her," says the insider.

As for Cruise's ex? "Katie wants to make sure the visits are in the context of him being a parent figure."
