Sorry for asking such a stupid question but last time i rode a bike was 30 years ago it had 3 gears and I had to pedal backwards to change gear.
With the beer belly getting bigger and the looming prospect of losing our parking at work i have just bought a Hybrid Bike as i will travel to work on park tracks and road.

The question I have relates to gears mine has 21 now which gears should i be in for hills and normal biking, I my self would have thought 1-7 for hill work but my legs seem to go faster in 7-14. Im awfully confused any help would much be aprreciated, Sorry if the grammar isnt too good but just been for a 15 min spin and im out of breath and legs like jelly !!!

thankies in advance
