I have a couple of vintage 12 speeds -- a Bridgestone RB-3 and a restored 72 Super Course. I'm guessing I'll need a newer / better bike than what I have-- better gearing, etc... for a ride of that length.

If you want to get something new, that is fine. I would suggest though that if you do, get it sooner rather than later so you are used to it by the time of the big ride.
