Summer bike protection for the winter

Well winter is just around the corner and I will to need to get my old bike out to use for the winter soon.

I was wondering what you guys do to store your summer bikes? I was thinking of storing it in our loft after putting pipe lagging on the tubes and maybe wrapping it in plastic, paying some special attention to the chain which I will oil and cover in something like a plastic bag.

Do you have any other advice or suggestions on what would be best to do?

As long as it is stored inside in a dry place, I would just clean well, lube all parts that require it and maybe if you're really particular cover with a soft breathable cloth (think similar to a cotton sheet).

I wouldn't wrap in plastic as this will trap any moisture inside and encourage rust.

It gets mounted to a trainer in front of the tv in the basement.
