I had to tie down the bike with many straps to avoid wind issues, and in that way it survived the usual Irish winter storms with 90 km/h wind guts.

I was able to tie it and untie it in 5-10 mins

I agree that if you don't use it, the bike will get wet in the inside.

If you google around perhaps there are bike sheds made like tents and tools to remove moisture from them. They are expensive but they can be an option for you.

Thank you fear_factor84!
