That was a question I also had. The website doesn't give the precise details but I presume the Facebook page will do so closer to the time.

Starting and stopping points are not being disclosed to avoid large gatherings of spectators and comply with Covid regulations.
Restrictions on gatherings mean there are no prescribed stopping points en route and breaks and refreshments taken by each vehicle will be ad hoc.  Similarly starting and ending points for each day cannot be announced as hubs for spectators.
