I just lean my BBS02 bike against something to stand it up, then sit on the ground and brush off any dirt and grim on the chain ring, chain and cassette while moving the chain by hand using the cassette in reverse. Once the surface dirt is gone, I lube the chain on the top and bottom using White Lightening (great stuff, not greasy, sheds dirt) moving the chain by the cassette in reverse once again.

Of course the best and easiest way to do it is with a bike stand. Walmart has a flip-down bike holder that mounts to the wall for about $12 that supports 50lbs.
