This article studies the issues of using in urban conditions a flywheel energy storage for passenger and cargo bicycles (pedicabs) in order to utilization the braking energy of the vehicle for subsequent acceleration by the flywheel. A mechanical stepless self-regulating transmission for the flywheel drive, which allows realize the regenerative braking and acceleration with maximum efficiency, is proposed. The calculation results confirm the effectiveness of proposed technical solution.
