Im only able to train in the early a.m when the temp is around 70 and the humidity is upper nineties. I do longer rides in 80-90deg temps on the wkend w/ no problem. I have a race this mo and im sure the temp will be at least 90. I plan on doing lunch break rides at very low intensity on as well as my a.m 2hr rides, will this help?

I think anything helps. You could wear more clothing in the morning, too.

Foremost, get used to drinking lots while you ride, even if during the early morning rides when you may not need it.
