Quintiles is the world’s largest provider of biopharmaceutical development services and commercial outsourcing services. We’re proud to work with Quintiles UK headquarters in Reading to deliver their annual ‘Tour le Q’ cycling event for employees and family.

Particularly useful given this was the ‘biggest’ BBBR ever raising a staggering £125,000!

Taking the Londres-Paris 24 Heures challenge was a test in itself, and perhaps Coxy’s most epic moment was ‘cresting’ Kop Hill the morning after an ITP fundraiser which had literally finished in the wee small hours of that same morning.
