How to add a freewheel constraint in solidworks 2011 ?

I want to add a constraint in my assembly, a cylinder must follow rotation of another, but only in one direction.

Like the rear gear on bike. (I'm not sure freewheel is the right word).

Thanks for your help !

You could use the Gear mate under mechanical mates, but that will allow motion in both directions. I don't know of any mates that restrict motion in only one direction.
