A cycle path could be introduced on the riverbank between Brigg and South Ferriby as part of an Ancholme River Trust Project.
The overall cost of the project would be in the region of £800,000, with the surface made of crushed stone rather than tarmac.
The project has seen £3000,000 secured already from North Lincolnshire Council.
Speaking at the spring meeting of the Ancholme Users Group, North Lincolnshire Councillor Rob Waltham said: “We hope this can be delivered in a reasonable time frame and we will work with parish councils along the route to attract extra funding.
“Meeting with landowners will be crucial if the project is to be built over its full planned length and the route could criss-cross the river using the bridges en route.”
