About me  

Graham Mawhood is alucky enough to be a Yorkshireman, currently living in Lancashire (that phrase can be read in a number of ways!). He started his cycling career as a young lad doing Cycle Speedway. He first came into Outdoor Activities as a Mountain Bike Trail Leader but over the years has gained a variety of qualifications and worked with a wide range of groups. His interest in Archery has led him to buy different bows and he now runs a small Archery Club in Bolton. He has been with OAS for over 12 years now.
