I guess not all super blocks are the same. This article is about SLC and nyc. I guess the difference is that in Barca they want to keep peds/bikes flowing through the center of the blocks while in slc they are huge blocks of all buildings.

Сегодня впервые во многих странах был отмечен Всемирный день велосипеда, учреждённый Резолюцией Генеральной Ассамблеи Организации Объединённых Наций по инициативе Президента Туркменистана Гурбангулы Бердымухамедова.

or if your Turkmen is rusty:

Today, for the first time in many countries, World Bicycle Day, established by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution on the initiative of President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, was celebrated. …

In addition to boys and girls, many adults recall with pleasure the sensations of childhood behind the wheel of a two-wheeled “car,” and many who appeared on the iron horse with knitting needles appeared in the cyclists’ ranks. …

Now the country has a tendency to develop mass sports, and cycling is one of the most accessible and “popular” types of physical activity. Finally, riding a bike brings a great emotional pleasure, and at the same time a wonderful opportunity to explore the world around, to visit the wonderful, protected parts of nature, without damaging their ecology. Therefore, it is not at all surprising that as a result of one international opinion poll on the subject of the most outstanding invention of mankind, the bicycle was recognized as the winner: by the number of votes, he bypassed such inventions as the telephone and the Internet combined!
