You should be able to coax a cucumber vine to grow in a certain direction by pegging it down to the soil, pointing in the direction you want it to take. Use a piece of coathanger or other sturdy metal, bent into a hoop and pushed down into the soil. The vine will be force to grow out from wherever you peg the vine.
