I also live in Tampa and have two bikes which neither are kept indoors. Since I ride daily, my carbon fiber road bike lives in the van, along with my wife's trike, and is parked in a carport. My aluminum hybrid is kept in our shed under a plastic cover and has been there for the last six years. I seldom ride the hybrid anymore but when I do, I only need to wipe away the cob webs and put air in the tires. Every few months, I'll take the hybrid out of the shed and give it a good cleaning on days that I'm cleaning my road bike. I rode the hybrid for two years after purchasing it and it looks the same today as when it was my main bike. All of my riding buddies keep their road, mountain and hybrid bikes in the garage. No problems.
