Cycles are also known as upvotes. You can see the number of cycles you have after your username in PARENTHESES. They don't serve any real purpose, but if you have a lot then it means you have been helpful to people on repl and/or have shared a cool project that people have upvoted.
You get 5 cycles if someone marks your answer as correct.
