With heat, your plastic and rubber parts will start to break down. The colors will fade and the plastic will become brittle. The sun will also degrade the plastic parts on your bike. The timeline of damage depends on whether your bike is in direct sunlight or humidity. In the worst-case scenario, it might take about a month for all that corrosion to go down.
In a place like southern California, where the weather is damn near perfect, and if you have mid-range components on your bike, it could take three to four months before you start seeing anything like that on a bike protected from sun and rain.

I Want to Go Outside in the Rain Lyrics
That said, you can do something about it Having a tarp over your bike can at least shield it from the rain and sun. You can also delay corrosion with a little extra layer of grease along the seals that can act as a second barrier to prevent water from getting in. If you have a beach cruiser with rusted chrome fenders, one trick you can do is take balled-up aluminum foil and rub that on there, and it will help remove the rust. But use thin aluminum foil, not the super-heavy duty stuff.
The bottom line: Leaving your bike outside for a day or two won't do major damage. You may see signs of rust after a week of neglect. After one month in bad conditions, your beloved bike parts will start to degrade. Spring is one of my favorite seasons. The leaves are beginning to grow on the trees.
Flowers are blooming. Rivers are rushing.

But for those plants to grow and those rivers to run, it takes rain. And there is plenty of it in the spring. A pair of rain boots, a waterproof rain jacket and an umbrella make rainy-day outings so much fun. My little guy gets so excited when it rains because it means he gets to use his umbrella!

"I WANT TO GO OUTSIDE IN THE RAIN" LYRICS by THE STYLISTICS: I wanna go outside
It is so much more enjoyable for everyone to have clean clothes waiting for them at the car. Just in case someone falls into a mud puddle. But with that being said…. Get dirty! Jump in those puddles; dance in the rain!
Put on those play clothes and go play! So watch your little one get dirty and explore! Bring a plastic bag to put the dirty clothes in. Take a cue from the flimsy mats auto shops put in cars and lay down some paper over the mats.
