Kolie coached me for a bit and still coaches some teammates and friends of mine. He definitely knows his science. Prepare to suffer, is my only suggestion.

It's typically around 65ish. I usually ride facing an open window, with a box fan pointed at my back. It's fine unless I'm doing sweet spot or above, at which point airflow becomes a real limiter.
