I have a heathy cucumber plant with lots of cuc;s on it, but the problem is the skin on the cuc's are spikey. What is this



This is quite natural. They can be easily rubbed off by hand or you can peel them before eating, especially if the peel is thick.

They are ridge cucumbers, rub off the spikes and eat the rest.

Where did you get your seeds or plants from?, they are obviously a mixture unless you sowed or planted them at different times.
