Novice bike builder

I will submit my 90 day retirement notice on March 1. I plan to ride the GDMBR for 30 days this summer with my son. I recently bought a new Cannondale MTB frame on eBay for a great price and it is coming together slow but sure. Anyone in the 50 Plus (50+) group ride the GDMBR?

Great Divide? I haven't ridden it, but have seen coverage of it and it seems like quite an adventure.

It is the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. A 2700 mile + ride from Canada to Mexico using primarily dirt and gravel roads. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_D...ain_Bike_Route
