I do not believe that is Evan unless he is in MD. That is North Bethesda Middle School in Bethesda ,MD. Went there many years ago.

I'll be going out now to do some road testing. We live at the top of a hill. The road down gets to about a 12% grade so it will make a good test for the regen braking system.

Lemme know how that goes Evan.
(regen braking)
I have my doubts you're gonna get much back into the batteries.
Of course, I've been wrong before :D

Recovering some energy would be a bonus. The main reason for the regen braking is the long downhill into town. It's about 10 kilometres and drops about 1400 feet. I need brakes more than electricity.

To cycle to town I have to go from A on the far left to B on the far right using the road in the foreground which goes over the ridge.
