Madonna, 65, looked radiant as she enjoyed a bike ride in New York City on Wednesday, days before her rescheduled Celebration Tour kicked off.
The pop icon, who is known for posting glamorous, heavily filtered snaps on social media, showed off her glowing complexion with a light makeup palette as she got some exercise in, 10 days before her tour kicked off with four shows in London O2 Arena.
The Like A Prayer hitmaker, who is recovering from a bacterial infection that left her hospitalized, wore a black hoodie from her own merchandise line and a baseball cap while cycling, teaming it with matching shorts and leggings.
She wore fingerless gloves and completed the ensemble with white sneakers.
For the practice sessions, her blonde locks were styled into braids.

Madonna is preparing for her first tour in three years after a health problem this summer left her in hospital.
The tour kicks off in London on October 14, with the star playing three more dates on October 15, 17 and 18 at the 02 Arena.
Earlier last month, People claimed that the mother of six was very excited to hit the road to perform her new songs.
‘Last Monday she returned to rehearsals. She is so happy to be back on stage and feels strong,” the source said.
“She is working closely with her long-time collaborators, Jamie King and Stuart Price, to put the finishing touches to the show,” the source says, adding that the series of shows is the icon’s “most ambitious tour yet”.
In August, Madonna looked happier than ever at her birthday party in Lisbon.
She wore a floral print dress and a daring silver gown as she sang with daughter Lourdes.
Her family includes Lourdes Leon, 26, Rocco Ritchie, 23, David Banda, 18, Mercy James, 17, and 11-year-old twins Stella and Estere.
