Winterize your bike.
Before you store your bike for the winter, you’ll need to wash it thoroughly to remove any mud or grime that could corrode the parts. Lubricate the chain, put air in the tires, and give your bike an overall tune-up to keep it in good shape while it sits for months on end.
Pick a good storage spot.
Would you rather keep your bike inside where it’s warm all winter long or in the garage where you have extra storage space? It’s important to choose the right area that keeps it from being damaged or in the way. If you’re short on space in your home or the garage, self storage is available to keep your bike and biking equipment tucked away safely for the winter.
Mount the bike on the wall.

Using wall or ceiling hooks will not only protect it from accidental run-ins with the car in the garage but also save space on the floor for other items.
