On balance, a sister publication from LP might be regarded as more useful Middle East (Lonely Planet Multi Country Guide). Notes I made on the cycling trip are available FOC from the CTC library and might be of use for someone wishing to undertake the trip or visit some of the countries by cycle. [...]. Of course, this information is also now several years old.

For instance, with more information I chose to go south through Jordan, ferry to Egypt, and then go back north into Israel, ending in Jerusalem. This made sites such as Petra in Jordan and St. Anthony's Monastery in Egypt fit nicely on the itinerary, and for me ending in Jerusalem provided a more fitting climax. No one trip can fit everyone. Whatever your desires, consider a guidebook that presents more options.
----UPDATE: I didn't take that trip actually; but I think the principle is still valid! Design your own trip! Lonely Planet's general guide to the Middle East is not bad.
