Water is a sliding scale with heat, you can require 4-5 gallons a day if it's really hot, and I have no idea how much that would translate to if you were exercising at cycling rates. I think one of those large folding 5 gallon jugs in a trailer or on the racks would be a good idea.

The hottest it has ever been when I was cycling on a tour was about 95, and I couldn't keep in the water with 3 oversized bottles on my frame, not surprisingly. I have even been dreaming about making special cages to allow me to carry huge bottles, maybe 2 litter pop bottles somewhere, or the option of carrying a gallon bottle on the rack in some purpose built fitting.
