- "the Tour de Tysons Grand Prix bicycle races are coming Sunday. The Tysons Partnership, a group organized by developers, got approval from Fairfax County to close some lanes of traffic on a one-mile loop comprised of Westpark Drive, Westbranch Drive and Jones Branch Drive, just south of the Gannett headquarters and the Dulles Toll Road. The group plans a day full of races beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 5 p.m., including those for kids, seniors and experienced riders. Michael Caplin, executive director of the Tysons Partnership, said the purpose of the event was to “celebrate the fact that Tysons is bicycle-friendly” and “to demonstrate alternative modes of transportation to the automobile.”
