Question about Cycling
If your bike is old, you need to make sure the gears or chain aren't worn out. Secondly you need to make sure that the rear gear shifter is well greased or oiled. It usually gets clogged with dust that prevents its from moving freely. If you have a grease thinner or if you have the time completely remove it, wash it soap, let it dry, oil it and put it back.
Another common gear problem is how well the rear arm is synchronized with the gear shifter on the handle bars. if you have gears 18.104.22.168.5.6 and the rear isnt properly placed you might have situations where the arm rests right in between 1 and 2 and causes the chain to make a funny noise. since the gear shifter has numbers, check to see if the gear the chain is on corresponds with the number the shifter is showing. So the largest gear [ the one closest to the spokes] is 1 and so on
So,  check to see if your parts aren't worn out,  check to see if they are properly oiled  check to see if the gears are properly set
