Question about Cycling
Can you move the front derailleur into the correct position by hand? If not ,there may be some mud or debris stopping it. Another possibility is the limit screw is out of adjustment . The most likely thing is that your cable is seized. It happens all the time. Water carrying mud and stuff trickles down between the cable and the housing the cable moves in and forms rust which makes the cable stop moving when you shift. Undo the cable at the front derailleur and see if it moves into the correct position. I don't know what kind of shifter you have grip, trigger or what but after you have the cable loose try shifting and see if the cable is free in the housing . If it is then see if the derailleur is free. If it is adjust the limit screw and reattach the cable.
