Patrick Dempsey Covers 'Bicycling' January/February 2013
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 Greyâ€™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 Iâ€™m celibate itâ€™s easier to focus on my training plans. Seriously, I want to ride a century; thatâ€™s my goal. My longest ride so far is 75 miles.”
On what his future plans are: â€śIâ€™d love to open a bike shop in Mailbu thatâ€™s a hangout for cyclists. Thereâ€™s nothing like that out there.â€ť
