The Chiliad Challenge is a side mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The mission is started by entering a parked Mountain Bike on top of Mount Chiliad between 7:00 and 18:00 and having a cycling skill above 40%. The goal of the mission is to be the first to reach the base of the mountain while racing with other mountain bikers down the mountain. There are three courses that need to be completed for completion.
Whereas in any other vehicle race wherein one can shoot at other contestants and get away with it, in this muscle-based race, if the player attempts to shoot opponents, not only will the player fail the mission, a one wanted star will also be obtained. Typically though, trying the race again at the top of the mountain will help lose the cops. The player can, however, get off and use the sniper rifle (no other weapon can be used) to eliminate them without penalty.

- While in The Chiliad Challenge, get off of your bike and jump off the mountain. Then open a parachute, the game will return you to your bike, but you will still have an open parachute on your back. The parachute then loses all of its function as a parachute. The video can be seen here on YouTube.
- The Cobra Run Course features North Shore (wooden ramps) that did not exist in the early nineties which San Andreas is set, but grew in popularity in the world of mountain biking from the mid ninties onwards.
