Default Cider fermentation temperatures

What is a good range for fermenting cider? I brewed my first batch of beer Saturday, and since then I am interested in brewing cider and a mead. I'm having a little trouble finding this information.

Thanks!

From the White Labs website:

WLP775 English Cider Yeast:
Classic cider yeast. Ferments dry, but retains flavor from apples. Sulfur is produced during fermentation, but will disappear in first two weeks of aging. Can also be used for wine and high gravity beers.
Attenuation: >80%
Flocculation: Medium
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 68-75°F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium-High
