Judie, anyone who bikes? I went biking yesterday and, for the first time, went on a dirt path w/ a lot of hills. I have a 15 gear bicycle and just stay at 13 or 14 for the most part because I'm going flat. I have never figured out how to shift gears consecutively as you get lower. I have three large and five small ones. So, I can get down to 11, using the largest big gear and smallest little gear (sorry, I don't know any technical terms), but how do I get to 10? If I shift the large gear to the lower level, I end up on 6. Do I do that and quickly shift up or do I go up to 15 to shift to 10? I can't do that while going uphill. Does this make sense?
