Good news for bicyclists navigating the bevy of Golden Gate pedestrians: the Bridge will reopen the west side bicycle throughway sometime in early to mid-September. Closed since May for retrofitting, the east side portion of the bridge has been a cramped assortment of bicycle commuters and pedestrian tourists. The city heeded complaints and painted bicycle lines along the shared sidewalk earlier last month, but the reopening couldn't come a moment too soon.

Official relaunch date announced later today, we'll update when we know more.
