I usually dont hose it down, unless its REALLY dirty. Everynow and then I give it a massive clean! I take wheels off. Clean rims, frame, derailer, chain, and teeth of all chainrings. Getall the clumps of dirt and grime, that the lube forms. then wipe it all down, and make it look like new.
After rides, I usually just hosedown tires and frame, then let it to dry. I then adjust brakes (V-brakes), and make sure its all shifting good. And thats about all.
Infact its probably due for a good clean now
