I know it's all a cycle and everybody bike it

from Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Ed Sheeran) – Old School Love Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Word play, he uses the word “cycle” and “bike” not only to refer to life (it’s a journey and everyone’s in it for the ride) and the next line, but because the words are synonyms for bicycle.

“It’s all a cycle” also refers to the idea expressed in the first two verses that your future is somebody else’s past.
