Electric Motors and Controllers

I am designing an offroad quad and I want to use motors inline and connected via shaft to each rear wheel. I really want reverse as this vehicle is for disabled people who cannot get out and push so I don't think I can use a freewheel. However I think having direct drive is going to be annoying when I'd like to just coast. So my question is how can I have reverse but not have to run the motors downhill? Maybe running the motors wont be so terrible but it just seems annoying. The motor will most likely be something like the cyclone 3000w which has planetary gears built in the get the reduction needed here.
