Is it possible to add easing to a looping, time remapped precomp in After Effects?

I have a 1 second precomp that is a rotating wheel using LoopOut(). Using Time Remap this animates during my entire main composition which is about 20 seconds.

I'd like to include an ease in so that the wheel starts turning gradually before rotating at a constant velocity. Doing this to the first time remap keyframe is obviously wrong, as the ease then happens every second. Is there a way of doing this without making the precomp 20 seconds long? (I found a longer precomp was slowing down the rendering.)

My suggestions would be to split the animation into three parts by duplicating the precomp in project panel and manually keyframing the rotation for the beginning acceleration and ending deceleration, then placing the three appropriately on the timeline. Main trick is to match the rotation angle and speed at the join points.

Thanks for that idea. I was hoping there would be a more elegant way, but have begun to realise that is often wishful thinking with After Effects!
