A CityLab classic from our archive is making the internet rounds: a 13,235-mile U.S. road trip designed for 70-degree weather every day.

1. Barcelona is holding municipal elections on Sunday! In anticipation, I'm going to tell you, one last time, about my research project on Barcelona's "superblocks." If you care at all about urban planning -- or just living in cities -- you will find this story fascinating.
