Biking in the rain

It's pouring outside, but I still wanna go biking later. What maintenance/cleaning should I do on my bike after my ride? Like how do I clean the chain and the suspension?

Last time I went on a rainy ride, a couple days after I had a flat. The area about the hubs were still soaked with moisture. this is ok.

by drip dry, you mean hanging it and letting it air dry? isn't that pretty much the same as leaving it on your gears to dry and won't it cause rust. what do i relube it with?
