Business case for converting car parking to cycle lanes

A review (published in March 2015) presents a business case for converting parking spaces into cycle spaces by looking at 12 studies from around the world.  See the full article at http://www.citylab.com/cityfixer/2015/03/the-complete-business-case-for-converting-street-parking-into-bike-lanes/387595/.

The closest study to home for us is Bristol, where shopkeepers overestimated the number of their customers who drove to their shops and underestimated the number of cyclists. It would be interesting to know if this is true of shops on the A6.
