I'm not familiar with training to run.
Deadlift and squat will definitely help you on the bike, especially if you are interested in sprinting. Some road riders avoid the gym like the plague. But, I don't agree with that. The gym can help you create some baseline strength upon which any type of rider can build his training. You'd be amazed at how much work the glutes do for the pedal stroke. Many think all of the work is done with the quads. Both of those exercises train the glutes very well.
