Modal shift to electric pedal assisted cycles (EPACs) can help with reaching the transport emission goals of the European Green Deal. With rising sales of EPACs in Europe, a lack of appropriate (electric) cycling infrastructure remains a major barrier for many potential users. This paper discusses the results of a survey about the requirements of (potential) cyclists to design better cycling infrastructure. Key findings are that cyclists and non- cyclists both want quality cycling infrastructure with safe crossing points and there is but one significant difference between bicyclists and EPACs: the need for charging points for EPACs along the cycle route.
