A one-kilometre extension of a cycle lane could make it the longest in the country.
Plans have been put forward to extend the segregated bike and pedestrian lane in Hove to 2.7km.
The route already runs from Dyke Road to the Upper Drive and would be extended to Nevill Road.
The £1.4m cost would be met by a successful bid by the council for government Cycle City Ambition funding.
This would contribute to the core network of cycle and pedestrian routes we are setting up across the city. By reallocating some space to these lanes we have made cycling and walking safer and more attractive especially to younger and inexperienced riders."
