Signs: Bicycle Camino Detour to Avoid the Steep Climb and Descent Just West of Castrojeriz.
The town named “Kill Jews” is now trying to change its name.
Just north of the Camino Francés (Camino Santiago) as it leaves Castrojeriz is a town, marked on current highway maps, called Castrillo Matajudíos. Indeed, there is a Camino detour route passing through the town for bicyclists who wish to avoid the steep climb and then descent of the cuesta.

"Mule Killer hill" has a particularly steep, badly graded and rough descent of several hundred meters. While I have only walked, I have seen several cyclists fall on the rough gravel.
