On one host? Copy it through the filesystem. /cygdrive/x/ maps to drive x.
If you still have problems with unix/dos lineendings, recode can solve these.

Between hosts? Use the Windows networking (SMB). You can acces the network
paths via //server/share/filepath

If the hosts are in not connected via a windows network, the scp program (from 
openssh) was already mentioned. 

Stripped cc to cygwin-xfree, since this is not a xfree problem
