Patrick Dempsey Covers 'Bicycling' January/February 2013

Patrick Dempsey Covers 'Bicycling' January/February 2013

Patrick Dempsey shows off his shaved legs on the cover of Bicycling magazine’s January/February 2013 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 46-year-old actor had to share:

On how cycling helped him handle becoming the star of his hit show Grey’s Anatomy: “Psychologically, getting back on the bike really helped me. It was hard to weather the success of Grey’s, but I found I could go for a ride and get centered. Cycling also taught me a lot about managing discomfort. When you leave your comfort zone, you learn how to manage your emotions and to stay focused.”

On shaving his legs for cycling: “Yes, leg shaving has done wonders for my riding; now that I’m celibate it’s easier to focus on my training plans. Seriously, I want to ride a century; that’s my goal. My longest ride so far is 75 miles.”

On what his future plans are: “I’d love to open a bike shop in Mailbu that’s a hangout for cyclists. There’s nothing like that out there.”

    Oh btw, maybe I’m missing something here but he did say ” now that i’m celibate ” :O
    What the hell ?

  • Casey

    Isn’t he still married, didn’t think he’d gotten separated so, celibate? Either one very supportive wife that is swearing off sex until he can ride a century or they’ve maybe split& (understandably) theyve not released anything. Very odd thing to say though. I mean, I love cycling too but sexiled for cycling? Only if I were an olympian.

  • Diane

    I get the feeling that he’s just joking about that, since he then says “seriously”…

  • Casey

    Yeah, Im thinking its a play on one of Meredith lines from Grey’s anatomy, when the character decided to be celibate&take up knitting because she needs to get over McDreamy&stop sleeping with every guy she met at the bar when she was drunk, claiming the knitting would be good for her dexterity.

  • Carley

    I’m thinking the celibate comment is him joking that now that he shaves his legs, his wife doesn’t want to sleep with him anymore

  • Jerry

    Wait what – he is CELIBATE?!

  • EllenFTW

    People, he’s not celibate, he was JOKING. Patrick is a big joker and you can’t take things he says too literally.
    I think he said it because he had talked about opening a women’s cycling team then right after talked about being celibate (if he opens the team, he’ll be celibate etc.) It was a joke.
