Ruby's in downtown Davenport  will host a brat/beer/bike contest on Wednesday.

Ever wondered how fast someone can drink a craft beer, eat a brat and then bike 1-mile? 

See for yourself during an event Wednesday at Ruby's, the beer/brats/bike establishment in downtown Davenport. 

The contest is sponsored by Front Street Brewery, which will provide the beer, Ruby's, which will provide the brats, and BluJaket, a Quad-City based mobile app that launched in January. 

The competition has three legs: Drink a beer, eat a brat and ride 1-mile on a stationary bike. Participants can choose to complete each leg one at a time or simultaneously.

The event starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Ruby's, 429 E 3rd St., Davenport.
