Lets take it to another level.

Aero the bike so it coasts further.

While it is coasting keep pedalling just to spin up the flywheel.

Continue pedalling then add the stored energy in the flywheel.

This allows a burst of energy for acceleration to a speed higher than you could reach through pedalling alone.

Now you have the inverse of pulse and glide using stored energy to reach a higher average speed than you could on pedalling alone.
